In medicine, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are the principal types of IBD. Inflammatory bowel diseases fall into the class of autoimmune diseases, in which the body's own immune system attacks elements of the digestive system. Accounting for far fewer cases are other forms of IBD, which are not always classified as typical IBD:

  • Collagenous colitis
  • Lymphocytic colitis
  • Diversion colitis
  • Behçet's disease
  • Indeterminate colitis
