The presence of low-grade dysplasia in flat mucosa or any mass lesion other than a typical sporadic adenoma portends a high risk for synchronous or future CRC. In this situation, colectomy is advised, although in certain scenarios intensive surveillance may be justified. Although less well appreciated, Crohn colitis confers a risk of CRC comparable to that of ulcerative colitis. As with ulcerative colitis, the risk is proportional to the extent of colonic involvement. Surveillance guidelines are less well defined, but should roughly follow those for ulcerative colitis.

Etiology The cause of IBD remains elusive, although interplay of genetic, microbial, and immunologic factors clearly exists. Twin and familial studies demonstrate a component of genetic susceptibility. However, the concordance rates among monozygotic twins for ulcerative colitis (6–18%) and Crohn disease (~50%) indicate that genetics play a relatively minor role in disease manifestation. Presumably, specific mutations confer susceptibility to IBD but are not sufficient per se. Various susceptibility genes have been identified, including NOD2/CARD15 on chromosome 16 and IL23R on chromosome 1, in Crohn disease.
