It is stated that 10-20% of cases of non-specific inflammatory bowel disease cannot be classified. Thirty such cases, designated colitis indeterminate at the time of colectomy, were identified from the pathology files of St. Mark's Hospital. The Histopathological features of the surgical specimens and any available biopsy specimens were studied. In nearly all the cases urgent surgery had been required and the features of incipient or established fulminating disease were present. The pathology… Expand
Update for Indeterminate Colitis
TLDR
The definition of indeterminate colitis, its pathology, its natural history, and the outcomes of restorative proctocolectomy are addressed. Expand
Indeterminate colitis in clinical practice
TLDR
It is generally accepted that IC is a ‘temporary diagnosis' and with time, 50–80% of patients can be reclassified as definite UC or CD, although a minority of cases remain indeterminate for a longer period. Expand
Indeterminate colitis: definition, diagnosis, implications and a plea for nosological sanity
TLDR
The pathology of cases appropriately classified as indeterminate colitis and the implications of that diagnosis are described and recent advances in its pathological features, clinical management and its immunological and genetic associations are highlighted. Expand

TLDR
The natural history of IC more closely resembles that of UC than CD, supporting the notion that most patients with IC probably have UC and can safely undergo an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis procedure and have a reasonably good chance of having a good outcome. Expand
Clinical features and pattern of indeterminate colitis: Crohn's disease with ulcerative colitis-like clinical presentation
TLDR
Overlapping of UC-like presentations was frequently observed with Crohn's colitis but less so in CD patients during their clinical course, and the basis of differentiation and treatment of IC needs more attention. Expand
Problem areas in the pathology of chronic inflammatory bowel disease
TLDR
It may be difficult to make a definitive diagnosis of CIBD in the acute setting and important infective causes should always be excluded by histopathological, histochemical or microbiological means. 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
A Review Of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unclassified --Indeterminate Colitis
TLDR
The abnormality in the immune system will favor the use of biologic therapy that neutralize the pro-inflammatory cytokines and use of anti- inflammatory cytokines instead of corticosteroid and immunosuppressive drugs. Expand
Identification of pathologic features associated with "ulcerative colitis-like" Crohn's disease.
TLDR
More severe disease in the proximal involved region, terminal ileum involvement, active appendicitis, and prominent lamina propria neutrophils may be morphological factors associated with "UC-like" CD. Expand
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

TLDR
It is concluded that the term primary Crohn's disease of the colon is probably not an entirely adequate designation for all patients with this histological picture, since many patients withThis histological spectrum are clinically indistinguishable from ulcerative colitis. Expand

TLDR
Immunologic studies are still confusing, but it is suggested that patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease may have a state of altered immunologic reactivity. Expand

TLDR
Patients with clinical and microscopical features considered typical of granulomatous colitis tended to require more ileostomy revisions, but the long-term course after total colectomy and ILEostomy was similar for both forms of colitis. Expand
