Previous studies on the risk of lymphoma in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have yielded conflicting results. We aim to determine the incidence and risk factors for lymphoma in a large IBD population. Patients with lymphoma were identified from a single-center IBD database. The standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of lymphoma was estimated using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) registry. Risk factors for lymphoma were determined by comparing cases with a matched… CONTINUE READING
