What other extraintestinal manifestations commonly occur with IBD and peripheral Spondyloarthritis?

The most common nonarticular extraintestinal manifestations can be remembered with the following mnemonic:

  • —Pyoderma gangrenosum (<2%)
  • —Aphthous stomatitis (<10%)
  • —Inflammatory eye disease (acute anterior uveitis; 2%–5%): more common in Crohn’s
