Epidemiology of IBD in Southern Europe (EN)

., B. Vucelic

SUMMARY The paper covers the invited lecture on 22nd Panhellenic Congress of Gastroenterology on epidemiology of IBD in southern Europe. Traditional view has been one of high incidence rates of IBD in industrialized countries and low incidence rates in Asia, South America and southern Europe. Published data still support the existence of the northsouth gradient in Europe, but many papers emerging from southern Europe within the last decade show incidence rates almost identical with rates in northern Europe and UK. There is still dispute on the reasons for this change, either a real increase in the incidence of IBD in the south or better diagnostic process with identification of milder cases. (EN)
