Haemorrhoids are uncommon in patients with Crohn's disease. They usually become symptomatic when accompanied by diarrhoea. Conservative treatment must include control of bowel function, warm sitz-baths, and topical medications. Usually these non-invasive measures are successful. If symptoms persist, rubber-band ligation might be helpful. In rare cases, if symptoms are severe, and the rectum is spared from illness, selective surgical haemor-rhoidectomy may be successful [28].

Most surgeons believe that surgery should be avoided in the treatment of haemorrhoid diseases in Crohn's patients. In a publication, Jeffery et al [31] reported the results of 21 patients with Crohn's disease presenting with active haemorrhoids that were treated surgically. Postsurgical complications, including sepsis, strictures, fistulae and unhealed wounds, occurred in ten patients, and six patients ultimately required a proctectomy.
