Environmental influences such as tobacco use seem to have an effect on Crohn disease. Smoking has been shown to double the risk of Crohn disease, whereas the risk of developing ulcerative colitis is lower in people who smoke than in those who have never smoked or in those who stopped smoking before their diagnosis. It has been suggested that a diet high in fatty foods may increase the risk of Crohn disease.

In , the prevalence of Crohn disease in the United States was estimated on the basis of data from Olmstead County, Minnesota, and was approximated at 8 cases per , population. Urban areas may have a higher prevalence of IBD than rural areas do. This difference in incidence correlates with the highest frequency of IBD in temperate climates and more industrialized parts of the world, such as Western Europe and North America.

The overall incidence of Crohn disease in Europe is about 5. Increases are reported from some high-incidence areas eg, Denmark and Sweden. Earlier studies from the s reported an incidence of 4. Incidence figures in Asia range from 0.

A systematic review revealed that the highest prevalence for Crohn disease in North America was per , persons, compared with per , persons in Europe. The age of onset of Crohn disease has a bimodal distribution. The first peak occurs between the ages of 15 and 30 years late adolescence and early adulthood , and the second occurs mainly in women between the ages of 60 and 70 years.

A greater proportion of colonic and distal Crohn disease has been diagnosed in older patients, whereas younger patients have predominantly ileal disease. In general, the frequency of IBD is similar in males and females, with some studies showing a very slight female predominance. The rate of Crohn disease is 1. In Japan, a male predominance exists. Crohn disease is reported to be more common in white patients than in black patients and rare in Asian and Hispanic children. Rates are higher in people of Jewish descent, particularly in Ashkenazi Jews and Jews of middle European origin as compared with Sephardic or eastern European Jews.

Crohn disease is a chronic inflammatory condition with an indolent course. Appropriate medical and surgical therapy helps patients to have a reasonable quality of life, with an overall good prognosis and an extremely low risk of a fatal outcome.

Several earlier studies estimated a slight decrease in life expectancy associated with certain prognostic indicators, such as female sex, long disease duration, and disease location. The increased mortality was related to pulmonary malignancies, genitourinary tract diseases, and GI, liver, and biliary diseases. In contrast, other studies have reported normal survival in patients with Crohn disease.

With the advent of new medical therapies, population-based studies have shown that overall survival for North American patients with IBD is similar to that expected in the US white population. Crohn disease is typically characterized by periods of remission and relapse.

Patients with proximal small bowel disease have a higher risk of mortality than those who have ileal or ileocecal disease. The excess mortality may be ascribed to complications of Crohn disease. Acute Crohn disease of the terminal ileum is often discovered during laparotomy for suspected appendicitis and has an excellent prognosis. The acute episode is usually treated conservatively, and as many as two thirds of patients may show no subsequent evidence of regional enteritis.

Discussion of the diagnosis, management, and surveillance of colorectal cancer in patients with IBD is beyond the scope of this article. Current data suggest that with the advent of improved therapies for patients with IBD, there is a trend toward decreasing risk of colorectal cancer.
