Summary of "Terminal ileitis due to Yersinia enterocolitica: differential diagnosis with Crohn´s disease in a 12-year-old male."

Yersinia enterocolitica is a gram-negative rod causing intestinal infection in humans. It shows different clinical pictures with many different etiologies to be ruled-out, which sometimes makes it difficult to reach a timely and correct diagnosis. We report the case of an adolescent boy presenting with right lower quadrant pain from terminal ileitis with endoscopic findings akin to Crohn´s disease finally diagnosed as Yersinia enterocolitica, highlighting the usefulness of the different ancillary methods employed.

A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON.
