Microscopic Colitis

  • Microscopic colitis

    Microscopic colitis: Microscopic colitis is a type of inflammation of the colon, or large intestine, that can cause watery diarrhea and cramping. While it can be painful and unpleasant, it's much less severe than other types of inflammatory bowel disease. Microscopic colitis is an inflammation of the large intestine (colon) that causes persistent watery diarrhea. The disorder gets its name from the fact that it's necessary to examine colon tissue under a microscope to identify it. The reported mean annual incidence ranges from0.8 to 6.1 per 100,000in habitants. Peak incidence was observed in older women(up to 26.9 per 100,000 inwomen aged 60-69years in Sweden studies).  On the other hand, microscopic colitis  was diagnosed at a rate of 10per 100 normal-looking colonoscopies performed in patients with chronic watery diarrhea, and ofalmost 20% of those older than 70 years.
