Burrill B. Crohn, M.D. and his colleagues identified “regional ileitis,” the principal form of these chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, at The Mount Sinai Hospital in 1932.
They characterized key features of Crohn’s disease as below:
– Intestinal inflammation and scarring
– Abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fever
– Bowel obstruction, leakage and abscess formation
They conducted pioneering clinical studies in search of cause and cure.
