A 28-year-old male asked:

If you see ulcer in the terminal lleum and proximal ascending colon, do you think it's crohn's? even if entire colon and ileum has normal mucosa? what else could it be if not ibd?

Crohn's: In my opinion, ulceration in the ileum and ascending colon is Crohn's disease until proven otherwise. I would assume symptoms consistent with inflammatory bowel disease accompany these findings. A gastroenterologist would be best to answer your question, however.
