Ulcers and Crohn’s disease
Crohn’s disease is an inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract (GI) that can affect the deeper layers of the intestinal walls. Unlike ulcerative colitis, which is confined to the colon, Crohn’s disease can occur from the mouth to the anus, including in the esophagus, duodenum, cecum, stomach, small intestine and the colon.
In 45% of cases Crohn’s disease is located between the small and large intestine, the so-called ileum and caecum (ileocoecal region). One of the major features of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), such as Crohn’s disease, is the development of ulcers or open wounds in the gastrointestinal tract.
Species and localization of ulcers
Depending on where the disease attacks, a person with Crohn’s disease may have ulcers throughout the colon or a chain of contiguous ulcers in just a part of it. In other areas of the gastrointestinal tract, ulcers may be distributed in groups with intact, healthy tissue in the middle. Chronic inflammation can also cause ulcers in the genital area (perineum) or anus.
Sometimes Crohn’s disease develops painful mouth ulcers, known as aphthous ulcers. These mouth ulcers usually occur during an outbreak of intestinal inflammation. They may look like the most common ulcer in the mouth or occasionally much larger ulcers.
Although extremely rare, plant pyrosostomy is an oral form of Crohn’s disease that causes multiple abscesses, pustules and ulcers in the oral cavity. These ulcers can be treated with oral and topical corticosteroids as well as drugs that alter immunity. However, sometimes these types of oral ulcers can be a side effect of drugs such as antibiotics used to treat IBD and can cause thrush, a fungal infection of the mouth. Immunomodulatory drugs can also make a person susceptible to viral infections such as herpes simplex (HSV) or cytomegalovirus (CMV).
