Crohn's disease (CD) is a relapsing transmural chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Its etiology remains uncertain, and infectious causes have been proposed as an integral part of this process together with genetic and environmental factors. Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP), an acid-fast bacillus causing a chronic granulomatous enteritis (Johne's disease) in ruminants, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of CD, although critics of the mycobacterial theory argue that MAP is a secondary invader rather than a causal factor.
