Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. Diarrhoea and pain in the abdomen are the main complaints. It usually affects women between 15 to 30 years of age. The condition can occur as a hereditary disease or, sometimes, in people who have had their appendix removed. The inflammation is controlled with medication, but if the colon is damaged extensively, then surgery may be required to remove the affected part of the intestine which can be performed by a gastroenterologist.
