Core Tip Extraintestinal manifestations occur in about one-third of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and may precede the onset of gastrointestinal symptoms by many years. Neurological disorders are uncommon in IBD but they can represent an important cause of morbidity and relevant diagnostic issue. Furthermore, the use of immunosuppressant and biological therapies for IBD may also play a pivotal role in the development of neurological disorders. Hence, we review the main features of neurological complications associated with IBD, with particular reference to those related to drugs, thereby focusing on their clinical presentation and possible pathophysiological mechanisms.
