Aims: - To study the feasibility of capsule colonoscopy in patients with Crohn's Disease (CD). - To compare the results of capsule colonoscopy with conventional colonoscopy in ...
Prospective study to compare in a blinded fashion four different diagnostic modalities to detect active small bowel Crohn's disease: a) colonoscopy with ileoscopy; b) small bowel follow th...
It is clinically challenging to differentiate Crohn's disease from gut tuberculosis especially in regions endemic of tuberculosis infection. The investigators plan to perform magnetic reso...
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that requires lifelong multidisciplinary management. Seventy percent of patients affected by Crohn's disease will require at least one surgical ...
Endoscopic evaluation, particularly the macroscopic mucosal and histological results of ileocolic biopsies, is essential for the management of inflammatory bowel disease. Endoscopic appearance is not ...
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the intestine and often leads to fibrosis, characterized by excess extracellular matrix [ECM] deposition, increased tissue stiffness, and strictur...
Reduced intestinal microbial diversity and bacterial imbalance (dysbiosis) are seen in studies of Crohn's disease. As it is difficult to obtain biopsy samples before disease presentation, the earliest...
Capsule endoscopy was used to detect intestinal infection in a 19-year-old man. The patient was initially believed to have Crohn's disease due to a notable family history of the disease. Capsule endo...
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. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.
