The article presents the modern classification of ulcerative colitis; latest guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of the disease are considered. Treatment of ulcerative colitis includes dietary advice, administration of drug therapy (mesalazine, sulfasalazine, glucocorticosteroids, infliximab, azathioprine), psychosocial support, and surgery when appropriate. The choice of treatment is determined by the activity of inflammation, the volume of lesions of the colon, the presence of extra-intestinal manifestations, duration of history, efficacy and tolerability of previously received therapy, and the risk of complications of the disease.
