Crohn’s disease (IBD)

Crohn’s disease is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. The disease most commonly occurs in the ileum (the area where the small and large intestine joins the colon), but the colon and other parts of the gastrointestinal tract may be affected as well; includes thickening of the intestinal wall. Crohn’s disease increases the risk for colorectal and small intestine cancer.
