Hi - it has been a while since being here. Hope you can help with this question. I am in a bad flare and have had to track records from a while ago (this is a long story in itself) - 1995 report
anyway - i am reading a file from a Dr. that told me I had Crohns disease and I need some help interpreting the endoscopic and pathology report
Endoscopic diagnosis: Moderately severe Crohn's Colitis
Pathology report: Proximal sigmoid and rectum show marked acute and chronic infalmmation with widespread acute cryptitis. There is mild architectural distortion. No granulomata or giant cells. Findings are not specific and differential diagnosis includes inflammatory bowel disease and infectious colitis.
Are those 2 different diagnoses? Further in my chart is continues to speak of Chron's Disease. I guess my questions is this:
Would the pathology report come back with the words Crohn's Disease in it if that was true diagnosis?
Thank you - hope someone can help.
PS I have not had colonoscopy since and this is first flare since.
