Clinical remission is the absence of symptoms. Clinical remission does not mean that the disease is gone, just that there are no symptoms present at that time. Microscopic or endoscopic remission is the absence of disease on biopsy or during a scope. Surgical remission is the absence of disease because of surgical removal of the diseased part.
