There were no data concerning the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in France.
The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis in northern France.
This prospective population based study was realised through the gastroenterologists of the region Nord-Pas de Calais and the Somme Departement.
Each gastroenterologist referred patients consulting for the first time with clinical symptoms compatible with IBD.
Data were collected by an interviewer practitioner present at the gastroenterologist's consulting room.
