Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive system (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis). In contrast to Crohn's Disease, which may involve all layers of the intestine and may be non-continuous, ulcerative colitis only involves the colon lining and is continuous. The distinction between these two diseases is not straightforward, and diagnosis is made by a colonoscopy test in which can verify the disease, determine the degree of its severity and whether it has spread to the intestines.
