Are there any conditions similar to Crohn’s Disease?

There are a number of conditions that can mimic Crohn’s Disease. In certain parts of the world, tuberculosis is very prevalent and it can mimic symptoms of Crohn’s Disease. Inflammatory diseases of the bowel, such as microscopic colitis, can cause symptoms that may be similar to Crohn’s disease, such as abdominal pain or diarrhea. Celiac disease is another condition that can present with similar symptoms, such as weight loss, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. However, on imaging, blood tests, and endoscopy or colonoscopy, a specialist can differentiate among these conditions.
