directly visualizes the mucosa and allows for direct tissue sampling, resulting in high diagnostic sensitivity for mucosal disease.
Multiple comparative studies proved the diagnostic yield superiority of 83-100% [42-44] for capsule endoscopy related to computer and magnetic resonance tomography, push enteroscopy, and even ileocolonoscopy
We retrospectively examined the histopathologic biopsies of 521 consecutive adult patients who underwent diagnostic ileocolonoscopy
in our department from January to December 2017.
(6) Furthermore, in an analysis of patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), 81% of the patients showed abnormal findings that were classified as active chronic or CD-like lesions on ileocolonoscopy
. (7) Additionally, the polymorphisms for JIA have been shown to share with those of other autoimmune diseases including CD in the genome-wide association studies.
The two groups were followed for one year, with mucosal biopsies and ileocolonoscopy
performed at entry, 6 months, and 12 months.
The control group of ileal tissue was composed of eight patients who underwent ileocolonoscopy
and the examination was normal (intestinal mucosa tissue control group-IC Group).
From July 2014 to September 2016, 35 patients (mean age 33,12; range 9-90; 16/19 F/M) were selected for this study, and all patients had a previous ileocolonoscopy
diagnosis of CD.
 A combination of radiology such as CECT and endoscopy such as ileocolonoscopy
coupled with few supporting clinical or lab evidences may be an acceptable strategy of identifying ileocecal and lymph node abdominal tuberculosis when other possibilities have been suitably (mostly clinically) excluded.
Subjects were scheduled to undergo a diagnostic ileocolonoscopy
for chronic GI symptoms during the period from January 2008 to December 2010.

(5) Wakefield's team conducted a number of diagnostic procedures on the children, including ileocolonoscopy
and biopsy, MRI, electroencephalography, and lumbar puncture.
He had been diagnosed with ileocaecal Crohn disease 2 years prior to this on the basis of ileocolonoscopy
