    The Extra–Intestinal Manifestations, in totality, of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Peripheral joint activity mirrors that of inflammatory bowel disease activity. That's important. The more that you have joint activity, the more that inflammatory bowel disease is pronounced in your patient. The skin lesion here for inflammatory bowel disease is known as Erythema nodosum. Also, Pyoderma gangrenosum. One would think with that name that's a bacterial infection. No, no, no, no, no. Poorly named, pyoderma gangrenosum. Lots of neutrophils, I'll give you that. And Apthous ulcers, maybe up in the mouth region but really could be anywhere. Eye lesions: Uveitis, Episcleritis.
