Answer

Most patients with presumed Crohn disease can undergo outpatient diagnostic evaluation. Patients should be examined on a regular basis. The frequency depends on the severity and activity of their disease. Follow-up laboratory workup should be performed regularly to monitor the safety and success of therapy.
