Part of the Developments in Gastroenterology book series (DIGA, volume 1)


Endoscopic biopsy specimens were obtained from the esophagus, body of stomach, gastric antrum and duodenal bulb of 45 patients with Crohn’s disease. The diagnosis was based on appropriate clinical and radiologic criteria. The ileum, the colon, or both were involved radiologically. No case involved the upper gastrointestinal tract.
