This book, the proceedings of Falk Symposium 98 held in Titisee, Germany, 25-26 May 1997, provides more depth in the field of extraintestinal manifestations of IBD, which gastroenterologists frequently see, but which require close contact with other subspecialities. Further, the basic understanding of the pathophysiology of extraintestinal manifestations clearly needs 'upgrading', based on recent advances in animal models or clinical investigation.
While the intestinal manifestations of IBD are increasingly well characterized, the extraintestinal facets of IBD currently are best understood on the basis of sophisticated clinical description, thorough investigation and an excellent clinical standing.
Modern techniques in immunology, microbiology, pathobiochemistry and new horizons in imaging methods as well as in surgery, however, have substantially contributed to this knowledge, and thus the book will foster a mutual exchange between the basic or theoretical disciplines and clinicians, including a variety of different subspecialities in order to stimulate clinical and theoretical research topics.
Accordingly, the book embraces both aspects: current knowledge on extraintestinal manifestations of IBD as well as a definition of objectives and a path for future steps in research at the end of this millennium.
