Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease the most common severe inflammatory bowel disease, and basic diseases among the elderly, poor health, reduced immunity, thereby increasing the risk of illness, the treatment in clinic is also relatively trouble. At present the world consensus for normal healthy people after the age of 40 shall be for colonoscopy examination for intestinal health escort us. And the relationship between the enteritis and the tumor in the elderly patients has attracted our attention
The risk of colon cancer and colitis in general course, the longer the duration, the higher the risk associated with tumor, the risk of canceration of ulcerative colitis in the elderly, should be delayed onset of ulcerative colitis and ulcerative colitis, early onset of ulcerative colitis history is long, dangerous. Colorectal cancer is higher, but the relative risk of colorectal cancer (mean compared with age-matched non ulcerative colitis compared to younger) a long history of patients with ulcerative colitis, delayed in patients with ulcerative colitis age specific high risk, relative risk of colon cancer, but smaller, for example, young people suffering from severe colitis in 10 years, the relative risk of cancer is 20 to 1; at the age of 45 after 10 years of disease colitis patients, the relative risk of cancer should be small, about 2 to 1.
Crohn's disease in elderly Crohn's disease and complications of parenteral complications compared with young people with Crohn's disease had no significant difference, however, the elderly Crohn's disease incidence rate of intestinal perforation is higher than that of young people in Crohn's disease, and the incidence of abscess and fistula may be high, the high incidence of elderly and intestinal diverticulitis, very good the lesion in Crohn's disease, may occur more easily lead to complications.
The incidence of colon cancer in patients with Crohn's disease is slightly higher, but overall, the relative risk is small.
