Core Tip Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic, incurable inflammatory bowel disease rising in incidence and prevalence. Strictures are a significant complication of CD with current first-line treatments including dilatation and/or surgery. Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis is a suspected causative agent in CD and the proposed treatment is anti-mycobacterial antibiotic therapy (AMAT). Preliminary results indicate AMAT for atypical Mycobacteria opens CD strictures efficaciously and reliably. Our study provides an alternative to endoscopic and surgical intervention to treat strictures in CD. Our findings should be validated by further randomized controlled trials.
