  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Histopathological investigations are made in seven patients which were histologically diagnosed as Crohn's disease from 1971 to 1977. For descriptive purposes, the lesions seen in specimens were divided into two regions; 1) longitudinal ulcers (and lesions associated with them) and 2) ulcers other than longitudinal ulcers.

 1) Longitudinal ulcers and lesions associated with them were divided ; the former into six types as in a) ~ f) (Fig. 13), the latter into eight types as in a) ~h) (Fig. 14).

 2) Ulcers other than longitudinal ulcers were divided into five types as in a) ~ e) (Fig. 15).

 3) As for the distribution of granuloma, granuloma was more frequently seen in types with longitudinal pathologies than in types with other pathologies.

 4) Extension to the proximal site of the pathology was histologically considered in six studied cases.
