Caption

Colectomy surgery scar in Crohn's disease. Close-up of a scar on the abdomen of a 14-year-old male patient with Crohn's disease after colectomy surgery to remove part of the colon (large intestine). Crohn's disease causes inflammation, thickening, and ulceration of the intestinal tract. Its cause is unknown and there is no cure. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhoea and the malabsorption of food, leading to weight loss.
