Crohn’s disease consists of one chronic inflammation of the intestine and in particular of the walls of this organ. It can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract, therefore from the mouth to the anus, although in most cases it affects the ileum, that is the last part of the small intestine, and the colon. The disease, whose name comes from the Burrill Bernard Crohn that it was the doctor who first described its symptoms and characteristics, is chronic, that is, it never completely heals: rather, it alternates phases of remission with others of exacerbation. Experts have known it since the early 1930s, but only recently have the available therapies increased. To explain to Virgilio News how to recognize it and how to intervene is the professor Luca Piretta, gastroenterologist at the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome.
