Crohn's disease (also known as granulomatous,
and colitis) is an inflammatory disease of the intestines.
However, it may also affect any part of the gastrointestinal
tract. Crohn's disease can lead to a wide range
of symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting,
or weight loss.
Crohn's disease is considered an autoimmune disease,
meaning that the body's own immune system attacks
the tissues of the gastrointestinal tract, causing
inflammation. It is therefore classified as a form
of inflammatory bowel disease.
