Abstract: Objective: Inflammatory Bowel Disease IBD is group of chronic and relapsing diseases claimed to be developed among genetically vulnerable individuals under the influence of misregulation of interactions between environmental factors and host immune system. The presence of a chronic disease is frequently associated with anxiety, depression and decline in the quality of life. In this study, our objective is to explore depression, anxiety and quality of life according to the diagnosis subtype in a group of IBD patients.

Results: 55 patients participated in our study, Both anxiety and depression scores were found to be higher in CD patients. There was no statistically significant difference between groups in terms of quality of life.
Among all IBD patients, the quality of life indexes were found to be worse in the cases with higher depression and anxiety scores. Conclusion: In the light of the data analyzed, the quality of life in both CD and UC groups is determined to be poor. There is a need for further research in wider follow up patient groups.
