Abstract
Ileal idiopathic forms of ganglioneuromatosis in adults are extremely rare and represent a challenging pathologic condition for the clinician. We present two cases of ileal ganglioneuromatosis consisting of stricturing lesions that mimicked clinical and radiologic features commonly observed in Crohn’s disease patients with ileal involvement.
