The article discusses the novel pathophysiological concepts of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Genetic factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of IBD and in both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. An illustration on the mechanism of gut-associated lymphoid tissue has been presented.

    Background: Breakdown of tolerance against the commensal microflora is believed to be a major factor in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Dendritic cells (DC) have been implicated in this process in various animal models, but data on human DC in IBD are very limited. Aim: To...
