Core Tip Prevalence of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease is on rise worldwide including Middle East. The progressive advance in our understanding of the etiopathogenesis coupled with an unprecedented increase in therapeutic options have progressive changed the management towards to a tailoring evidence-based intervention. In the consensus, statements have been agreed about the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel diseases based on the clinical evaluation and a combination of endoscopic, histological, radiological, and/or biochemical findings. In addition, the therapeutic options including biological and “small molecule” therapies have been revised in view of the treatment goals, which now aim to treat beyond “symptoms”, to achieve mucosal healing when possible and to minimise intestinal injury and bowel damage with resultant disability.
