In a recent issue of the journal, Choi1 and colleagues have assessed cumulative inflammatory burden (CIB) using endoscopic and histological findings from surveillance colonoscopy, and for the first time have revealed that CIB was significantly associated with the development of colorectal neoplasia (CRN) in patients with UC. This study is an elegant article and very meaningful from a clinical standpoint because the mean severity of microscopic inflammation derived from all surveillance procedures performed in the last decade has suggested it to be an important predictive biomarker for risk stratification of CRN in patients with UC. However, we would like to draw attention to a few important issues related to this very interesting article.
First, the authors evaluated endoscopic and histological inflammatory scores from the most extreme degree …
