About Crohn's Disease

Crohn’s disease is a disorder in which inflammation (swelling, redness) arises in the gastrointestinal system causing abdominal pain, diarrhea, and bleeding. Its cause is currently unknown but thought to be due to an abnormal response of the immune system (white blood cells) lining the intestines to the trillions of bacteria that reside there.
