BACKGROUND & AIMS We conducted a systematic review to determine changes in the worldwide incidence and prevalence of ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) in different regions and with time. [] Key Method We evaluated data from 167 studies from Europe (1930-2008), 52 studies from Asia and the Middle East (1950-2008), and 27 studies from North America (1920-2004).

Figures and Tables from this paper

Current global trends in the incidence of pediatric-onset inflammatory bowel disease
TLDR
The steadily increasing incidence of pediatric IBD over time indicates its emergence as a global disease, suggesting that studies should investigate the environmental risk factors among pediatric cohorts.
Epidemiology of inflammatory bowel disease in South America: A systematic review
TLDR
The IBD burden in South America is increasing at a rate possibly even greater than other developing regions around the world and further robust and representative data are required to further explore modifiable risk factors and disease phenotypes.
Systematic review and meta-analysis of the incidence and prevalence and 30-year trend of inflammatory bowel diseases in Asia: a study protocol
TLDR
This study was conducted to determine the incidence and prevalence of these conditions in Asia and their 30-year trend and uses previously published studies to do so.
Crohn's disease in Italy: A critical review of the literature using different data sources.
The Disease Burden and Clinical Characteristics of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the Chinese Population: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The study provided an estimated disease burden of IBD and demonstrated distinct clinical features in the Chinese population and large-scale population-based studies are needed to further evaluate these findings.
Incidence and phenotype of inflammatory bowel disease based on results from the Asia-pacific Crohn's and colitis epidemiology study.
TLDR
The emergence of IBD in Asia will result in the need for specific health care resources, and offers a unique opportunity to study etiologic factors in developing nations, says this large-scale population-based study.
Prevalence of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Pediatric and Adult Populations: Recent Estimates From Large National Databases in the United States, 2007-2016.
TLDR
It is found that the 10-17 age subgroup was the major contributor to the rising pediatric IBD prevalence, and the prevalence was higher in boys than girls for all forms of IBD, in contrast to the adult population where the prevalencewas higher in women than men.
The globalization of inflammatory bowel disease: the incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease in Brazil.
TLDR
The increase in incidence over time and the higher current prevalence are indicative of a historical progression in relation to the number of IBD patients in Brazil, similar to what was observed in countries from Asia and approximating those of the northern hemisphere.

Epidemiology of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease: A systematic review of international trends
Background: Temporal trends in the incidence of pediatric‐onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are controversial and a wide range of estimates have been reported worldwide. We conducted a
Increase in incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease in northern Denmark: a population-based study, 1978–2002
TLDR
A marked and parallel increase was seen in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease in both genders during the last 25 years, with a corresponding high prevalence of both diseases.
Epidemiologic study on the current incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in Madrid.
TLDR
The incidence of Crohn s disease and ulcerative colitis in Madrid has increased in the last decades, with rates close to those in northern European countries for CD, higher than those recently published in Spanish prospective studies and similar to those previously described in Spain and southern countries for UC.
[Incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease in Gijon, Asturias, Spain].
TLDR
Incidence and prevalence obtained in the environment were higher than those described in other areas of Spain and were similar to those found in areas of Europe and other parts of the world with a higher incidence.
Incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease in Japan: nationwide epidemiological survey during the year 1991.
TLDR
The aim of this nationwide study was to determine the recent incidence and prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease, i.e., Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) in Japan, and to send a preliminary examination sheet with diagnostic criteria to all hospitals in Japan that have more than 200 beds for general use.
[High incidence rates of inflammatory bowel disease in Navarra (Spain). Results of a prospective, population-based study].
TLDR
The incidence of UC and CD in Navarra has increased in the last decade, with rates close to those of northern European countries and higher than those recently published in Spanish prospective studies.
A population-based study of inflammatory bowel disease in Florence over 15 years (1978-92).
TLDR
IBD incidence rates and prevalence in this area of central Italy are currently comparable with those reported in northern Europe, and are necessary for planning adequate health care services for IBD patients.
The Epidemiology of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Canada: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
Canada has the highest incidence and prevalence of CD yet reported and the overall burden of IBD in Canada is approximately 0.5% of the Canadian population has IBD.
[Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in Aragon: outcome of a prospective population-based study].
TLDR
The incidence rates for inflammatory bowel disease in Aragon are higher than those previously described, the incidence of UC being inferior to that of Europe and that of Crohn's disease being similar the average for southern Europe.
The epidemiology of inflammatory bowel diseases in Finland
TLDR
An increasing trend was observed in the number of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, and the frequency was higher than that reported in most surveys, which constitutes a challenge for the health care system.
