Caption: Narrowing at the ileocaecal valve. Endoscope view of a narrowed (stenosed) ileocaecal valve due to Crohn's disease. This valve marks the boundary between the ileum of the small intestine and the caecum, the pouch that connects the ileum to the colon (large intestine). It acts as a sphincter, preventing reflux from the colon into the ileum. Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory condition for which the exact cause is unknown.
