To the Editor: We thank Drs Levenstein and Prantera for their insightful comments in response to our recently published manuscript (1,2). Our assertions were that clinical disease activity indices were poor predictors of mucosal inflammation in Crohn’s disease (CD) and only modest predictors of mucosal inflammation in ulcerative colitis, and that the presence of symptoms, independent of active inflammation, was associated with psychological comorbidity.

Introduction Symptom-based criteria to diagnose irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) positively perform only modestly. Our aim was to assess whether including other items from the clinical history and diagnostic workup improves their performance. Methods We collected complete symptom, colonoscopy, and histology data from 318 consecutive, unselected adult patients with lower gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms in secondary care. The reference standard used to define presence of true IBS was patient-reported...

AbstractObjective: Many patients with diarrhoea undergo colonoscopy. If this is macroscopically normal, random biopsies are obtained to rule out microscopic colitis (MC), but most patients have functional disease. Accurate predictors of MC could avoid the need to take biopsies in a substantial proportion of patients, saving money for the health service. We validated a previously described diagnostic scoring system for MC, and incorporated further variables to assess whether this improved perform...
