About 10% of patients with colitis due to inflammatory bowel disease have indeterminate colitis. Despite newer diagnostic tools, the frequency has not diminished over the past 33 years. The current preferred term among academicians is colonic inflammatory bowel disease unclassified (IBDU), although indeterminate colitis is the term endorsed for inclusion in the ICD-10 coding system. Indeterminate colitis is more frequent among children. The anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ASCA) and perinuclear… Expand
Indeterminate Colitis/Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unclassified (IBD-U)
TLDR
This chapter reviews the histologic and clinical features of IC in pediatric patients and contains updated information explaining why some patients continue to be diagnosed with IC (new proposed terminology of IBD-unclassified (IBD-U). Expand
Characteristics of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Serology in Patients With Indeterminate Colitis
TLDR
The disease phenotype in the majority of individuals initially labeled with IC evolved to be more consistent with either UC or CD on follow-up, suggesting pANCA, ASCA, and anti-OmpC, individually, were of limited utility in predicting a patient's subsequent disease phenotype. Expand
A contemporary and critical appraisal of ‘indeterminate colitis’
  • R. Odze
  • Medicine
  • Modern Pathology
  • 2015
TLDR
The most common causes of uncertainty in IBD pathology that may lead to a diagnosis of IC in a colon resection specimen includes the presence of fulminant (severe and toxic) colitis, insufficient radiologic, endoscopic, or pathologic information on the patient, failure to utilize major diagnostic criteria as hard evidence in favor of CD, and failure to recognize unusual variants of UC and CD that may mimic each other. Expand
Differential diagnosis in inflammatory bowel disease colitis: state of the art and future perspectives.
TLDR
Novel advanced endoscopic imaging techniques and biomarkers can shed new light for the differential diagnosis of IBD, better reflecting diverse disease behaviors based on specific pathogenic pathways. Expand
Evolution of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unclassified (IBD-U): Incorporated With Serological and Gene Expression Profiles.
TLDR
Results of the molecular and serological factors performed at the time of inflammatory bowel disease unclassified subjects' diagnosis suggests that they were very similar to UC, however, long-term studies are needed to better understand the natural history and molecular characterization of pediatric onset IBD-U. Expand
Emerging role of novel biomarkers in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease.
There is currently no gold standard test for the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Physicians must rely on a number of diagnostic tools including clinical and endoscopic evaluation asExpand
An Esophagogastroduodenal Crohn's-Like Disease in a Long-Standing Pan-Ulcerative Colitis Patient
TLDR
This is a case of a 27-year-old female with well-controlled and long-standing pan-UC, who developed Crohn's-like esophagogastroduodenitis, and the debated presentation of a coexistent IBD will be discussed. Expand
A Primer on IBD: Phenotypes, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Clinical Challenges
TLDR
Genetic studies will lead to a better understanding of the causes of individual IBD, more diagnostic tools to aid in evaluating the disease course and responsiveness to treatment, more novel targets to be identified for new drug development, and ultimately the most desirable strategies for IBD prevention. Expand
Characterization of Serum Cytokine Profile in Predominantly Colonic Inflammatory Bowel Disease to Delineate Ulcerative and Crohn’s Colitides
TLDR
The serum cytokine levels in patients with predominantly colonic inflammatory bowel disease are investigated in search of molecular biometric markers delineating UC from CC, finding no cytokines were found to be different between UC and CC. Expand
Plasma microRNA Profile Differentiates Crohn’s Colitis From Ulcerative Colitis
TLDR
The data indicate the promise and feasibility of a plasma miRNA–based assay to distinguish between these 2 conditions and identify 2 plasma miRNAs that differentiated CC from UC. Expand

What is the incidence, prevalence, and natural history of indeterminate colitis?
  • G. Meucci
  • Medicine
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases
  • 2008
TLDR
It is generally believed that in most cases IC merely represents a provisional diagnosis; indeed, follow-up studies have shown that a vast proportion of patients are eventually reclassified as being affected by either CD or UC, and up to 20% as not affected by IBD. Expand
Indeterminate colitis: A review of the concept — What's in a name?
TLDR
The term IBD unclassified (IBDU) is confirmed, as suggested by the Montreal Working Party 2005 for patients with clinically chronic colitis, that clearly have IBD but when definitive features of CD or UC are absent. Expand
The value of serologic markers in indeterminate colitis: a prospective follow-up study.
TLDR
Evaluated the value of anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA) and perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (pANCA) to increase diagnostic accuracy in categorizing IC and results so far show that ASCA+/ pANCA- predicts CD in 80% of patients with IC and ASCA-/pANca+ predicts UC in 63.6%.

Role of small-bowel endoscopy in the management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease: an international OMED-ECCO consensus.
TLDR
This document sets out the current Consensus reached by a group of international experts in the fields of endoscopy and IBD at a meeting held in Brussels, 12-13th December 2008, organised jointly by the European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) and the Organisation Mondiale d'Endoscopie Digestive (OMED).

The importance of diagnostic accuracy in colonic inflammatory bowel disease
TLDR
There is significant interobserver variation in the histological diagnosis of colonic IBD and this may have a profound effect on clinical patient care and, especially, on the choice of operation. Expand
Colonoscopy in inflammatory bowel disease. Diagnostic accuracy and proposal of an endoscopic score.
TLDR
The most useful endoscopic features in this differential diagnosis were discontinuous involvement, anal lesions, and cobblestoning of mucosa for Crohn's disease, and erosions or microulcers and granularity for ulcerative colitis. Expand
Natural history of indeterminate colitis
TLDR
The data suggest that patients continuing with a diagnosis of indeterminate colitis in spite of careful preoperative and postoperative assessment are unlikely to show features of Crohn's disease in the long term. Expand

TLDR
The findings of classic UC and CD in the colon are reviewed, but the emphasis is on atypical and newly described aspects that may cause diagnostic difficulties in pediatric patients. Expand
Overlap in the spectrum of non-specific inflammatory bowel disease--'colitis indeterminate'.

TLDR
Case of colitis indeterminate form a small distinctive group in the spectrum of inflammatory bowel disease which is characterised by a common pattern of pathology that presents a diagnostic dilemma. Expand
Serologic Responses in Indeterminate Colitis Patients Before Ileal Pouch-Anal Anastomosis May Determine Those at Risk for Continuous Pouch Inflammation
TLDR
Indeterminate colitis patients who have a positive antibody reactivity profile before ileal pouch-anal anastomosis have a significantly higher incidence of continuous pouch inflammation after surgery than those with a negative profile. Expand
