The study of depression has always been an important topic because of its widespread nature in people above 20 years of age. The comorbidity of depression with various diseases has always been an important topic of interest from the 1990s till now. As some of the mediators of both IBD and depression share a universal nature to some extent, I can say that they are dependent on each other. In this review article, I have discussed the various developments of comorbid depression and its relation to IBD or colitis. I have also discussed the pathophysiological concepts related to both depression and IBD in this review article. Finding a target that is common in inflammation compared to both IBD and depression can be a great help in finding treatments for people suffering from IBD as well as comorbid depression.



Comorbid depression, colitis, inflammation, cancer.
