The aim of the present study is to provide a comprehensive presentation of existing healthcare costs for these diseases in Germany and to compare them by inflation adjustments for 2018.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:  Performing a systematic literature search, monetary costs were extracted from German and English literature. Quality and relevance of the studies were assessed with a checklist.
RESULTS:  The average outpatient cost for inflammatory bowel disease amounts between 18 and 87 Euro/pat/30 days, the average inpatient cost was between 1026 and 9083 Euro/case. Depending on the type of calculation, biologicals cause different amounts of cost. Few data are available for direct medical 82 and 618 Euro/pat/30 days, direct non-medical 63and 84 Euro/pat/30 days and indirect costs 463 and 3493Euro/pat/30 days. The total costs are about 533 Euro/pat/30 days, related to one year 6485 Euro/pat.
