Abstract

The coexistence of Graves’ disease (GD) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), particularly Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), has not been well documented. 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 GD.
