oa South African Medical Journal - Acute regional ileitis (Crohn's disease) : treatment of a case with streptomycin
In this case of acute regional ileitis which was confirmed histologically, there was a dramatic clinical response to streptomycin therapy. It is possible that the improvement on therapy was co-incidental. We do not claim that streptomycin can cure acute regional ileitis. We hope that the report of this case will stimulate surgeons to observe the effect of streptomycin or other antibiotics on acute regional ileitis and to report their experiences.
