Context: the association between active inflammatory bowel disease and thromboembolic complications has long been known. However, Arterial thrombotic accidents in inflammatory bowel relapse and active phases are rare.

Case Report: We report two cases of arterial thrombosis events in inflammatory bowel disease context, both of them were operated with favorable outcome.

Conclusion: The pathogenesis of Thromboembolic complications in IBD has not been delineated; the proposed mechanisms include Hypercoagulability and inflammatory phenomena. We__ampersandsign#39;ll explain mechanisms and physiopathology of thromboembolic events and prevention possibilities.
