Crohn's disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It often occurs in the lower part of the small intestine know as the ileum but it may occur anywhere from the mouth to the end of the rectum (anus). The exact cause of Crohn's disease is unknown. It is a condition that occurs when your body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue (autoimmune disorder). Crohn's disease commonly affects people between the ages of 13 to 30. Common symptoms can include pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, loss of appetite, fever, and bleeding from the rectum.
