Abstract

Abstract Kveim tests were done on 48 patients with Crohn's disease. Of 45 with definite or probable Crohn's disease 23 had a positive Kveim test. This finding could be explained: ( a) by cross-reactivity between sarcoidosis and Crohn's disease antigens, ( b) by an ætiological agent common to the two diseases, or ( c) by a property of the Kveim test material used in this series.
