  • © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2014.In this chapter, we focused on the medical management of extraintestinal manifestations (EIMs) primarily associated with ulcerative colitis (UC). There is considerable overlap with respect to particular EIMs associated with UC or Crohn’s disease (CD), and the current evidence for management is frequently extrapolated from noninflammatory bowel disease (IBD) cases. Notable cases are highlighted to provide the evidence for practical management. Diagnostic and epidemiologic data are discussed where applicable to enhance management algorithms or treatment strategies, but a comprehensive review of all EIMs in IBD is beyond the scope of this review.
