In Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) the suspected etiological cause is a dysregulation of the intestinal immune system, in which it is possible to determine a cross-like immune reactivity against the resident microbiota; this mechanism explains the exsistence of Lesnioski-Chron's disease, a variant of IBD in which patients manifest osteoarticular problems that may also be the primary manifestation of the disease. The aim of this study was to compare some cases encountered by our research group at the University of Palermo with others reported in international literature on osteoarticular manifestations in IDB.
