Ulcerative colitis is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis causes long lasting inflammation of the lining of the large intestine (colon) and rectum and can cause ulcers in these areas. Anyone can be affected by this disease, but it can be hereditary. A few common symptoms of ulcerative colitis can be pain the abdomen, blood in the stool, and ongoing bouts of diarrhea, and unexplained fever lasting more than a day or two. Symptoms of this condition may go away on their own, but the disease usually requires treatment before going into remission. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition and symptoms usually develop over time, rather than suddenly.
