Therefore, this report reviews the literature regarding coexisting IBD and GD. Reported cases of concomitant IBD and GD are rare; 16 cases of concomitant UC and GD and 3 cases of concomitant CD and GD were found. Among the 19 reported cases of concomitant IBD and GD, IBD developed before GD in 8 (42.1%) cases, GD developed before IBD in 9 (47.4%) cases, and both conditions coexisted in 2 (10.5%) cases. Therefore, there was no evidence for a tendency of a preceding disease between IBD and GD. The interval between diagnoses of IBD and GD varied from 0 year to 20 years. Furthermore, there was no evidence indicating that patients with concomitant IBD and GD had poorer prognoses than those with IBD but without.. Read More»
