Background: Pulmonary involvement due to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is frequent when evaluating a patient with IBD and pulmonary involvement remains complicated. Most of the patients are asymptomatic and the methods used are mostly invasive or expensive procedures. The an of this prospective study is to evaluate the value of the fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FEND) level for the diagnosis of pulmonary involvement due to IBD and to investigate any correlation between FEND level and disease activity.
