  • Overview

    It is estimated that only 20% to 30% of patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) have a non-progressive or indolent course. While most patients with CD present with non-penetrating or non-stricturing disease, 50% of patients develop intestinal complications within 20 years of diagnosis. In this interactive CME activity, Dr. Sauk presents the case of a patient with CD, highlighting the importance of early recognition of disease complications and considerations for surgical management. This real-world patient case offers you an opportunity to test your clinical skills for the successful management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and learn more from an IBD expert faculty.
