Description:

Crohn’s disease is a chronic, immune-mediated, intestinal condition. It involves inappropriate immune responses and is characterized by discrete nodes of inflammation, called granulomatous lesions, and by abnormal passages from one body cavity to another, called fistulas. These can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. Crohn’s disease affects individuals across the globe, and its incidence rates are increasing. This learning program is designed to introduce you to the disease state and clinical management of Crohn’s disease. The program begins with a brief overview of inflammatory bowel diseases. You will learn about the epidemiology, pathology, and etiology of Crohn’s disease. You will also learn about the clinical diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and available treatment options.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Define Crohn’s disease.
  • Summarize the epidemiological information about Crohn’s disease.
  • Describe the symptoms, pathology, and complications of Crohn’s disease.
  • Summarize the genetic associations to Crohn’s disease.
  • Explain the diagnostic procedures for Crohn’s disease.
  • List and describe the treatment options for Crohn’s disease.
