New IBD research connects Crohn's disease with cervical neoplasia

from Inflammatory Bowel Disease News Today

A recent study published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology reported a new link between Crohn’s disease (CD) and uterine cervix neoplastic lesions. The researchers commented: “Women with a diagnosis of CD had increased risk of cervical dysplasia and cancer despite similar screening intensity as in the general population. Patients with UC only had increased risk of dysplasia along with a slightly increased screening frequency compared to controls. Patients with IBD should be encouraged to follow the screening program for cervical neoplasia and clinicians should be aware of the slightly increased risk of HPV-related cervical lesions in IBD patients.” more
