Cervical NeoplasiaA recent study entitled “Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Cervical Neoplasia: A Population-Based Nationwide Cohort Study” published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology reported a new link between Crohn’s disease and uterine cervix neoplastic lesions. The authors aimed to investigate a possible two-way association between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), particularly its most common manifestations -- Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis -- with Cervical Neoplasia. For this study, the team analyzed a national cohort of women arranged in three groups: Crohn's disease (which included 8717 patients), ulcerative colitis (which included 18,691 patients) and a control group (which included 1,508,334 women from the general population). While women with Crohn's disease and the control group received cervical cancer screening with the same frequency, in ulcerative colitis patients, the frequency was increased. During a follow-up of approximately eight years, 561 patients with ulcerative colitis were diagnosed with dysplasia, with 28 patients progressing to cervical cancer; in the case of Crohn's disease, 407 patients were diagnosed with dysplasia, and 26 patients ended up developing cervical cancer. Both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease patients had a higher ri
