About Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease, a chronic inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, affects approximately 500,000 Americans, including approximately 100,000 patients under the age of 18. The cause of Crohn's disease is not known, but the disease is associated with an abnormality of the immune system that could be triggered by viral or bacterial infections or a genetic predisposition. Symptoms of Crohn's disease can vary but often include abdominal pain and tenderness, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, weight loss and fever. There is currently no cure for Crohn's disease.
