CROHN's DISEASE


Introduction:

Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines. It is a non-specific granulomatous inflammation involving sharply demarcated single or multiple areas of intestine.

It can affect any part of the gastro intestinal tract but most commonly affects the terminal ileum or the ileocaecal junction. Crohn's disease is related closely to another chronic inflammatory condition that involves only the colon called ulcerative colitis.

Together, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are referred to as inflammatory bowel disease.





Most people with Crohn's disease lead active lives with few restrictions. Intestinal complications of Crohn's disease include obstruction and perforation of the small intestine, abscesses (collections of pus), fistulae, and intestinal bleeding.

Massive distention or dilatation of the colon (megacolon), and rupture (perforation) of the intestine are potentially life-threatening complications. Both generally require surgery, but, these two complications are rare.

Bleeding from the rectum, weight loss, joint pain, skin problems and fever may also occur. Children with the disease may have growth problems.

The disorder often remains quiet and easily controlled for long periods of time. When Crohn's disease has been present for many years there is an increased risk of cancer.
