Colitis is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that refers to inflammation of the colon (Crohn's disease is another type of IBD). Colitis is marked by inflammation and ulceration of the colon (the large intestine). Symptoms include abdominal cramping, fever, and bloody diarrhea with mucus. The diarrhea that accompanies colitis can lead to dehydration. Colitis may occur suddenly or come on gradually. Most cases of colitis begin before an individual is thirty years of age, although it can occur at any time. Colitis has no known cause but is believed to be an autoimmune disorder.
