In brief: Crohn's complication

Many Crohn's complications.
Granulomatous hepatitis (non infectious) And Amyloidosis of liver two rare but known problems. Please see your gastroenterology specialist soon. This could be due to some drug as well, such as sulfasalazine. Check Alkaline Phosphatase levels.

In brief: Liver disease

Liver disease has a broad differential diagnosis which can be from viral hepatitis, elevated iron, fatty liver, medications, autoimmune disease, and toxins ie drugs or alcohol.
There are also diseases associated with chrohns such as primary biliary cirrhosis. I would recommend seeing a GI or hepatologist for further eval of all the above. Prognosis depends on the cause and remaining liver function
