Abstract

The role of capsule endoscopy (CE) in Crohn's disease (CD) has expanded with greater understanding of the technology. The ability of CE to differentiate CD from other causes of inflammation has been questioned. Longitudinal studies are required to assess the long-term impact and significance of CE findings in suspected CD. The aim of this work is to verify in how many misunderstood cases of suspected Crohn's Disease CE was able to identify precociously and "by chance" when it is performed for recurrent obscure GI bleeding (OGIB), to evaluate how many of them were later confirmed during a median 24 months follow-up. Moreover, we observed the role of the early diagnosis in changing the clinical management of these patients.
