Abstract

Isolated ileo-cecal region (ICR) ulcers may represent underlying Crohn's disease (CD), intestinal tuberculosis (ITB), bacterial infections (including typhoid), amoebiasis, eosinophilic enteritis, drug-induced sequelae, or neoplasm. Overlapping morphological and microscopic characteristics of many of these diseases make it challenging to unequivocally confirm a diagnosis.
