ORTIZ VILLALBA, J; MACCHI SALIM, H  y  DI MARTINO ORTIZ, B. Ileal Crohn's Disease. A case report. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.1, pp.61-68. ISSN 1816-8949.

The term Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) includes a group of clinical entities that are characterized by chronic inflammatory processes of unknown etiology, and primarily, but not exclusively, affecting the intestine. Currently, several entities are included in this concept: Ulcerative Colitis (UC), Crohn's Disease (CD), Unclassified Colitis (UC), Microscopic Colitis (CM) and Reservoritis (Pouchitis). Crohn's Disease can affect any part of the intestine, with the most frequent location being ileal and colonic simultaneously. The inflammatory process in CD is transmural and its fundamental symptoms are usually chronic diarrhea and/or abdominal pain. We present the case of a young woman with a CD that exclusively compromises the terminal Ileon, in whom the diagnosis of ileal CD was performed with the clinical data, the endoscopic procedure and the pathological study, who responded satisfactorily to the established therapy, and the concept of CD with an emphasis on its diagnosis is reviewed.

Palabras clave : inflammatory bowel disease; Crohn's disease; ileitis.
