Abstract

Onset of the symptoms in patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease is sometimes characterized by osteoarticular manifestations. The usual presentation of peripheral arthritis is asymmetric, polyarticular and migrant, often involving large joints of the upper and lower limbs, unlike rheumatoid arthritis. This study analyses the statistical incidence of arthritic manifestations in elderly patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
