In Crohn disease, a vigorous inflammatory cascade is caused by the overactivation of helper T-cells in the gastrointestinal system. The results of this inflammation manifest themselves as the symptoms of Crohn disease. This article describes the pathophysiology of Crohn disease as well as multiple pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions that may assist patients with Crohn disease in preventing exacerbations and maintaining longer remissions.
