Abstract:   (1539 Views)
Thid article is a retrospective study on 37 patients with Crohn's disease, who have been admitted at Taleghani and Day general hospital during the past 14 years. This chronic inflammatory disease of gastrointestinal tract which is common in western world, had been rare in eastern countries including Iran until 30 years ago.
The object of this study is to show the increasing incidence of Crohn's disease in Iran during the past decades. Despite some similarities, we have found differences in our patients including sex distribution and gut involvement pattern. According to the writers point of view this differences are due to the small number of evaluated patients in this study. Increased incidence of Crohn' s disease in Iran is probably due to life style and diet modification, which are secondary to industrialization of the society.
