Sorry, this is kind of a duplicate question, I have been diagnosed with severe ulcerative proctitis in the rectum only, however I also have anal fistulas so they are querying Crohn's, I'm trying to make sense of all of this, but the absence of granulomas in the biopsies caused them to rule out Crohns in the first instance. I'm assuming that the treatment for Crohn's is similar to that of ulcerative colitis?
Any insight would be gratefully appreciated.
