Özet

Background: Although pulmonary dysfunction has been described in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), the pathogenesis remains unclear. Our aim was to study alveolar ephitelial damage using technetium-99m diethylene triamine penta acetic acid (Tc-99m DTPA) aerosol scintigraphy in patients with UC but without respiratory symptoms.
