Why Is Crohn's Disease so Serious?
In severe cases, the bowel can develop blockages, perforations, connections to other organs called fistulas, and/or pockets of infection called abscesses. People with Crohn's disease often suffer nutritional deficiencies because eating can make symptoms worse. Crohn's disease also can cause inflammation in other parts of the body, which can cause symptoms and serious problems.
