Crohn's disease is an inflammatory condition that can affect any portion of the gastrointestinal tract; however, it is frequently found at the end of the small intestine.
The disease tends to go through cycles of remission (no symptoms) and activity (symptoms). The goal of treatment for Crohn's disease is to control the inflammatory process and alleviate any complications associated with the illness. Crohn's disease is a chronic disease and is associated with a slightly increased risk of small intestinal and colorectal cancer.
