    Background Methods. This was a historical cohort study of 276 patients with CD who had been diagnosed between 1965 and 1998. The clinical course was evaluated by the course of the CD score (CCDS) according to the required treatments. The predictive factors were examined by stepwise regression...

    OBJECTIVE: Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) may both affect the colon. However, in approximately 10-20% of these cases, it is impossible to distinguish between these two entities either clinically or histologically, and a diagnosis of indeterminate colitis (IC) is made. Correct...

    Polymorphisms in NOD2 represent the single greatest genetic risk factor for the development of Crohn's disease. Three different non-synonomous NOD2 polymorphisms -- R702W, G908R, and L1007fsincC -- account for roughly 80% of all NOD2-associated cases of Crohn's disease and are reported to result...

    Hepatic portal venous gas is associated with numerous conditions and traditionally has been regarded as an ominous prognostic sign. I here are several reports of hepatic portal venous gas occurring in patients with inflammatory bowel disease after or during the performance of colonic diagnostic...
