What is the course of Crohn's disease?

The course of Crohn's disease is quite variable. Most patients have intermittent flares between periods of remission. Over the course of their disease, 75% of patients will require surgery at some point. Mortality rates in patients with Crohn's disease appear to be slightly higher than that of the general population.
