Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Burrill B. Crohn (June 13, 1884 in New York - July 29, 1983 in Connecticut) was a Jewish-American gastroenterologist and one of the first to describe the disease of which he is the namesake, Crohn's disease. In 1932, Dr. Crohn and his two colleagues, Dr. Leon Ginzburg and Dr. Gordon Oppenheimer, published an important paper describing the features of the then relatively unknown condition. They described fourteen cases, characterizing Crohn's disease as "Terminal Ileitis: A new clinical entity"; the description was changed to "Regional ileitis" on publication.
