Abstract

Renal and urologic complications are not uncommon in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, and can be directly or indirectly related to the underlying disease process or its treatment. Many of these patients have asymptomatic disease, or the urinary symptoms are nonspecific or overshadowed by bowel symptoms. By the time a urinary complication is considered, significant disease progression or renal damage may have occurred. These risks necessitate a high degree of diligence and periodic urologic evaluation as part of the long-term management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
