Crohn disease: neurologic manifestations
Crohn disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that predominantly involves the terminal ileum and colon. A wide range of extraintestinal complications may compose a portion of the clinical picture. Virtually all components of the nervous system, both central and peripheral, may become involved. Vigilance in recognizing neurologic dysfunction in the setting of Crohn disease, with prompt institution of appropriate treatment, can be important in avoiding irreversible consequences.
