Perianal disease, most commonly manifest as fistula or abscess formation, affects up to 40% of patients with Crohn's disease. Perianal Crohn's disease is disabling, associated with poor outcomes, and represents a therapeutic challenge for physicians. Correct diagnosis and classification of perianal disease is the first crucial step for appropriate multidisciplinary management. Areas covered: A literature search was performed of the PubMed database using the terms "transperineal ultrasonography", "transperineal ultrasound", "perianal disease", "perianal fistula", "perianal abscess", "magnetic resonance", "endoanal ultrasonography", "endoscopic ultrasound" in combination with "Crohn's disease"...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Mucosal healing, determined by endoscopic evaluation, is one of the most important prognostic markers for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. Findings from histologic evaluation, however, could complement findings from endoscopy in assessing mucosal responses to treatment. We analyzed long term results of children treated with thalidomide to determine the association between clinical response and histology and endoscopy findings. METHODS: We collected data from 2 multi-center trials of 70 children with refractory Crohn's disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC) (2-18 years old; ileo-colonic or colonic disease) given thalidomide or placebo (NCT00720538)...

A 23-year-old man was diagnosed with a giant pelvic paraganglioma in September 2013, and a 6-month chemotherapy course was performed. The chemotherapy resulted in stable disease of the tumor for about 1 year. However, in April 2015, the patient complained of fever and diarrhea of more than ten times a day. Endoscopy showed serpiginous (snake-like) ulcers in the cecum, ascending, descending, and sigmoid colons, with granulomas without caseation histologically. The patient was diagnosed with the active stage of Crohn's disease (CD) in June 2015...

OBJECTIVES: In pediatric Crohn's disease (PCD), the benefit of microscopy in disease activity assessment and prediction of clinical outcome is, due to the focality and transmurality of the inflammation, disputable. We investigated whether histopathological scoring system predicts complications in pediatric CD and correlates with endoscopical and clinical scores. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study on 63 patients. Endoscopy in the time of diagnosis was evaluated using the Simple Endoscopic Score (SES) and histopathology with the Global Histology Activity Score, both in its original version (GHAS) and its modification (modGHAS)...

OBJECTIVE: A relatively large proportion of patients with Crohn disease (CD) develop complications including abscess formation, stricture, and penetrating disease. A subset of patients will have genital and reproductive organ involvement of CD, resulting in significant morbidity. These special circumstances create unique management challenges that must be tailored to the activity, location, and extent of disease. Familiarity with the epidemiology, pathogenesis, imaging features, and treatment strategies for patients with genital CD can aid imaging diagnoses and guide appropriate patient management...

Fistula and abscess represent penetrating disease phenotypes of Crohn's disease (CD) and can develop in patients with or without prior history of CD-related surgery. While CD fistula and abscess have been traditionally treated with medical and surgical therapy, the role of endoscopic therapy in this particular phenotype of CD is expanding recently, thanks to advanced endoscopic techniques and a better understanding of pathogenesis and natural history of the disease and principle of treatment. The success of endoscopic treatment for inflammatory bowel disease depends on comprehension and appreciation of principles, then techniques, followed by instrument and device...

BACKGROUND: Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic and disabling condition. There is no curative medical treatment but current treatments provide increasingly sustainable control of the disease and allow patients a better quality of life. There is limited evidence supporting CD management in specific clinical situations, thus precluding an evidence-based approach. AIMS: To help clinicians in making informed treatment decisions, a group of 59 French gastroenterologists with experience in the management of CD met to develop straightforward and practical algorithms based on the European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) recommendations...
