Pulmonary manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease

These can take the form of extraintestinal manifestations of the IBD itself or disease associations due to shared risk factors.

They can occur in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease.

Direct extraintestinal manifestations include bronchiolitis, obliterative bronchiolitis and bronchiectasis.

Associated diseases include asthma and sarcoidosis.
