A study was recently completed on the long-term prognosis of Crohn's disease. The study went for twenty years and involved 273 patients. Results showed that about a quarter of the patients still had the condition 20 years after diagnosis. 24% had a relapse within the previous 12 months. 11 of the 16 who died within 20 years of the Crohn's disease diagnosis died from causes related to the condition. 3.4% of the patients had ileal or colic adenocarcinoma.
