Crohn’s Disease involves the entire gastrointestinal tract –from mouth to anus. However, it does not mean that the entire tract is affected; there can be areas in the intestine that are healthy in between the diseased areas. Unlike Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease can affect all layers of the intestinal wall (not just the lining).
Complications of Crohn’s disease
Complications of Crohn’s disease can be found within the gastrointestinal tract but there can be extraintestinal complications.
