Ulcerative colitis was first reported by Wilks and Moxon in 1875. In 1973, the International Organization Committee of Medical Sciences of the World Health Organization named the disease idiopathic colitis, also known as chronic nonspecific ulcerative colitis, in order to distinguish various specific inflammation.
