Terminal Iletis is a chronic inflammatory disease of one or more sections of the intestine that involves only the end of the small intestine or terminal ileum. The ileum is the last, longest and narrowest part that make up the small intestine. The term “ileitis” means “intestine inflammation”. Crohn disease can affect any part of the Gastrointestinal tract, but terminal ileum is the most frequent localization that gets inflamed. It is rare condition which may be chronic which means it has lasted a long time and may be acute which means it has occurred suddenly. There are periods of remission and exacerbation.
The disorder is common in young adults under the age of 40. It may result from infection of small intestine, obstruction, severe irritation due to some specific substance that causes some abnormal reaction, or faulty absorption of materials through the intestinal walls. Complication of surgery may also lead to ileitis.
Terminal ileitis causes small scattered shallow crater like areas called aphthous ulcers in the inner surface of bowel . These ulcers get deeper and larger in size with time leading to scarring and stiffness of the bowel . The narrowing of bowel, further leads to obstruction.
