Sample text

The distinguishing features have already been discussed at length. Sometimes, however, a clear diagnosis of Crohn colitis versus ulcerative colitis cannot be made despite colonoscopy, biopsies, and other appropriate studies. In this circumstance, the term indeterminate colitis is used. Forcione DG, Sands BE. Differential diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease. In: Sartor RB, Sandborn WJ (editors). Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Saunders, 2004:359–379. ᮣ Complications As previously discussed, Crohn disease frequently causes complications from penetrating and stenosing disease, including perforation, abscess, fistulae, and obstruction.

Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis has revolutionized the imaging of Crohn disease by allowing imaging of the bowel wall itself, as well as extraluminal disease such as abscesses or inflammatory masses. Common abnormalities of the gut include thickening and excessive mesenteric fat proliferation (so-called creeping fat). CT enterography, which uses a special low-density oral contrast, combines the advantages of CT and small bowel series by allowing detailed pictures of the small bowel mucosa, while at the same time imaging the extraintestinal abdomen.

Approximately one third of patients have disease that extends proximal to the splenic flexure (extensive colitis), often involving the entire colon (pancolitis or universal colitis). On occasion a so-called cecal patch of periappendiceal inflammation is encountered. This does not represent a true skip lesion suggestive of Crohn disease. Similarly, limited ileal involvement (backwash ileitis) can be seen in patients with ulcerative colitis who have pancolonic disease. Deep ileal ulcers, long segments of ileal involvement, or stricturing disease are consistent with Crohn disease and not ulcerative colitis.
