Ulcerative : Ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease are the two most common inflammatory bowel diseases we see. Even though they can seem similar, they differ in symptoms, affected populations, which parts of the digestive tract they affect, complications and treatments. Below i've linked a web page with many tables that compare the differences between the two.
