Patients with Crohn’s disease can become refractory for many reasons. Some patients present with severe disease with stricture, fistula, and obstructive symptoms and undergo surgery prior to use of aggressive medical therapy. Other patients have a more indolent course, but due to ineffective or inadequate medical therapy, become refractory to first-line agents.
