What is the prognosis of microscopic colitis?
The long term prognosis (course) of microscopic colitis is not clear. In
approximately two-thirds of the patients with microscopic colitis, the diarrhea
resolves spontaneously after several years. The remaining one-third of the
patients with microscopic colitis experience persistent or intermittent diarrhea
and/or abdominal pain for many years (possibly
indefinitely) as there is no cure for the condition.
