  • Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disorder of unknown etiology. An involvement of the intestinal lymphatic system has been suggested. Recently, monoclonal antibodies have become available to distinguish lymphatic vessels from blood vessels. The aim of the study was to examine the distribution of lymphatic vessels in ileal and colic walls of patients affected by CD and compare it with healthy controls and other inflammatory bowel diseases. Twenty-eight cases of CD, 13 cases of… CONTINUE READING
