The burden of inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, has never been estimated in Italy using administrative data sources. Our objective was to measure the occurrence of inflammatory bowel diseases in the Lazio region (Italy) using administrative data and to test the sensitivity of the Crohn's disease case-finding algorithm with respect to clinical diagnosis.
