Abstract

Patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis and colonic Crohn's disease have an increased risk of colorectal cancer compared with the general population. This review assesses the evidence that endoscopic surveillance may prolong life by allowing earlier detection of colon cancer or its pre-cursor lesion, dysplasia, in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
