Under the umbrella of inflammatory bowel diseases, Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis are two most common disorders. Though both these disorders have similar symptoms, the difference arises in the areas affected in the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract). The Crohns disease in most cases affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, from the mouth to the anus. On the other hand, ulcerative colitis affects only the colon, which is also called the large intestine. Additionally, there is also the possibility of Crohns disease affecting the entire thickness of the bowel wall, while ulcerative colitis only impacts the innermost lining of the colon. Also, in Crohns disease, the inflammation of the intestine can miss some normal areas in between patches of diseased intestine, which does not occur in ulcerative colitis. It has been observed that though age is no basis for this disease, Crohn's is more prevalent among adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35.
