Ulcerative colitis is a severe and potentially life-threatening form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation and ulceration of the large intestine. A worst-case scenario result is that the colon thickens and scars and is unable to absorb excess fluid from the feces. Serious complications, such as colon cancer, a ruptured colon, fistulas, and the formation of abscesses around the anus may result from ulcerative colitis.

Diarrhea and constipation are both very common in those suffering from ulcerative colitis. Other symptoms of ulcerative colitis include weight and appetite loss, abdominal cramps, fatigue, bloody diarrhea, and fever. More serious symptoms include rectal bleeding and the formation of abscesses in the colon. Ulcerative colitis is often readily identified and diagnosed since its pathological appearance is distinct. A colonoscopy is typically used to diagnose the existence of ulcerative colitis.
