In brief: Many
Colitis means inflammation of the colon.
This inflammation can be caused by infection, medications, autoimmune phenomena, radiation or poor blood supply. Signs and sxs of colitis include bleeding, diarrhea, abdominal pain, but one may have colitis and no symptoms.

In brief: Colitis conditions
There is no set number as there are many causitive factors or triggers that can potentially induce a colitis.
Some catagories can include ischemic, infectious, drug induced, ideopathic, chemical induced, allergic etc.
