The recurrence of Crohn's Disease after ileo-colonic resection is a crucial issue. Severe endoscopic lesions increase the risk of developing early symptoms. Prevention and treatment of post-operative Endoscopic Recurrence (ER) have been studied with conflicting results. We compare effi cacy of azathioprine (AZA) vs. high-dose 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) in preventing clinical recurrence and treating severe post-operative ER.
