The article discusses the recurrence of Crohn's disease. Research has been done on Crohn's disease in Leeds, Cleveland, and New York. The researchers studied the importance of clinical patterns and behavior of disease for predicting the future of the disease, and need for surgery. The need for surgical recurrence in this disease is lowest, and less than 30% patients needed surgery.
