Social deprivation associates with increased mortality in conditions such as colon cancer, heart disease and diabetes. However its effect on mortality in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is not known. The study has been performed to understand the effect. 914 patients with ulcerative colitis and 553 with Crohn's disease were identified. Between January 1996 and June 2002 there were 38 deaths in patients with ulcerative colitis and 35 deaths in patients with Crohn's disease. Disease associated mortality in IBD, even more than overall mortality, is associated with social deprivation.
