Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), represent a real public health issue because their frequencies have been constantly increasing since the 1950s and these diseases affect a young population (average age of diagnosis between 20 and 30 years).

Nowadays, the pathophysiological mechanisms have yet to be clarified, and from a clinical point of view, the differential diagnosis of IBD remain difficult to establish and their evolution and care difficult to manage. This is particularly true when disease is suspected and in the early stage of IDB where symptoms are low and not specific.

The research team developed a new endomicroscopic score for the differential diagnosis of IBD, combining 8 parameters from the quantitative analysis of endomicroscopic analyses.
