Crohn's disease (also known as granulomatous enteritis or colitis, regional enteritis, ileitis, or terminal ileitis) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines which affects the whole gastrointestinal tract.
It was named after the American gastro-enterologist Burril Bernard Crohn, who described fourteen cases in 1932.
