A Case of Crohn's Disease of the Duodenum


Crohn's disease of the duodenum is a rare disorder that should be considered in patients with distal Crohn's disease in whom significant upper gastrointestinal symytoms develop. A combination of diagnostic tools, including attentive history taking.and appropriate radiographic and endoscopic studies, should be applied to make the diagnosis, Although not always confirmatory, careful histologic study if adequate biopsy material may be helpful. Medical treatment should be the treatment of choice for all patients with nonobstructing Crohn's disease of the duodenum and is similar to that of Crohn's disease elsewhere in the gastrointestinal tract. If obstruction develops, bypass surgery is indicated. We experienced a case of Crohn's disease of the duodenum and reported with the review of the literature.
