Crohn’s disease is an idiopathic, chronic, relapsing inflammatory disorder of gastrointestinal tract which incriminates upper and lower bowel segments in discontinuity and engenders transmural inflammation. Additionally designated as terminal ileitis, granulomatous enterocolitis or regional enteritis, segmental, patchy bowel inflammation is commonly confined to ileum, colon or upper gastrointestinal tract. Characteristically, chronic or active colitis is associated with non caseating granulomas, transmural lymphoid aggregates and fissuring ulcers.
