What is crohns disease? Can someone offer some explanation in detail. Thanks in advance!
It's a chronic inflammatory disease of the small intestine and/or colon. The symptoms are usually lower right quadrant pain with diarrhea that may or may not contain blood, pus, or mucous. There may also be fever, weight loss, and other non-GI symptoms such as joint pains. The diagnosis is usually made by colonoscopy or x-ray series of the small bowel. It's treated with several anti-inflammatory drugs and sometimes surgery.

That's this non-professional's limited and incomplete synopsis.
