OBJECTIVE The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing in Eastern Europe. [] Key MethodDESIGN A prospective, uniformly diagnosed, population based inception cohort of IBD patients in 31 centres from 14 Western and eight Eastern European countries covering a total background population of approximately 10.1 million people was created. One-third of the centres had previous experience with inception cohorts.
Occurrence of Anaemia in the First Year of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in a European Population-based Inception Cohort—An ECCO-EpiCom Study
TLDR
The prevalence of anaemia was higher in CD than in UC patients and, overall, 49% of CD and 39% of UC patients experienced at least one instance of anaemic disease during the first 12 months after diagnosis.
Initial Disease Course and Treatment in an Inflammatory Bowel Disease Inception Cohort in Europe: The ECCO-EpiCom Cohort
TLDR
Surgery and hospitalization rates did not differ between patients from eastern and western Europe, although more western European patients received biological agents and were comparable to previous population-based inception cohorts.
Epidemiology and temporal trends (2000–2012) of inflammatory bowel disease in adult patients in a central region of Spain
TLDR
IBD is a highly prevalent disorder in southern Europe, reaching the incidence of CD similar to the figures provided for Northern Europe.
The epidemiology of inflammatory bowel disease: balance between East and West? A narrative review
TLDR
The objective of this review is to present the evolving changes in the epidemiology when looking at disease occurrence in the East compared to the West based on the most recent data.
Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Occurrence, course and prognosis during the first year of disease in a European population-based inception cohort.
TLDR
A prospective European population-based inception cohort of incident IBD patients was created to investigate whether an East-West gradient in the incidence of IBD exists in Europe and whether the earlier and more frequent treatment with immunomodulators and biologicals observed in this study will change the natural disease course and phenotypes over time.

Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease across Europe: is there a difference between north and south? Results of the European Collaborative Study on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (EC-IBD).
TLDR
The higher overall incidence rates in northern centres did not seem to be explained by differences in tobacco consumption or education, and the magnitude of the observed excess for both conditions is less than expected on the basis of previous studies.
Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in Primorsko-goranska County, Croatia, 2000–2004: A prospective population-based study
TLDR
The incidence of IBD was higher in the urban than in the rural population, with the exception of on the islands, and incidence rates in the northern coastal part of Croatia are currently comparable with those reported in northern Europe.
Increasing Incidence of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Spain (1996–2009): The SPIRIT Registry
TLDR
In the last 14 years pediatric IBD incidence has almost tripled, with a more important CD increase, and a significant increase of incidence rates in the study period was observed.
Increasing Incidences of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Decreasing Surgery Rates in Copenhagen City and County, 2003–2005: A Population-Based Study from the Danish Crohn Colitis Database
TLDR
The incidence of IBD in Copenhagen increased noticeably during the last decades, time from onset of symptoms until diagnosis decreased markedly, extent of CD was related to age at diagnosis, and the risk of surgery was low in UC.
Paediatric inflammatory bowel disease during a 44-year period in Copenhagen County: occurrence, course and prognosis – a population-based study from the Danish Crohn Colitis Database
TLDR
A significant 15-fold increase in the incidence of CD and a significant increase inThe number of UC patients with extensive disease in period II compared with period I is found.
Inflammatory bowel diseases with onset in childhood. Clinical features, morbidity, and mortality in a regional cohort.
TLDR
The incidence of IBD is low in childhood, and Childhood-onset CD does not differ in clinical presentation, disease course, or prognosis from adult-ONSet CD, however, growth retardation is a problem among male CD patients.
Incidence, disease phenotype at diagnosis, and early disease course in inflammatory bowel diseases in Western Hungary, 2002–2006
TLDR
The incidence of IBD in Veszprem Province in the last decade was high, equal to that in high‐incidence areas in Western European countries.
Incidence, Clinical Presentation and Location at Diagnosis of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Prospective Population-Based Study in Northern France (1988-1999)
TLDR
The incidence of Crohn disease in the children of northern France showed an increasing trend during the 12-year period while the incidence of ulcerative colitis remained stable, and in the entire population(children and adults) the incidence increased significantly.
