Discussion There are three types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): Crohn’s disease (CD) – can affect entire gastrointestinal tract but often is discontinuous (i.e., has skipped areas), has transmural inflammation and disease, has granulomas Ulcerative colitis (UC) – affects the colon, is continuous (i.e., has no skipped areas) and has superficial mucosal ulcerations Unclassified IBD – has chronic colitis but not specific features of CD or UC The specific pathogenesis appears to be multifactorial with having a genetic predisposition (1.6 – 30% risk of developing UC if patient has first deg...

Alterations of the mycobiota composition associated with Crohn’s disease (CD) are challenging to link to defining elements of pathophysiology, such as poor injury repair. Using culture-dependent and -independent methods, we discovered that Debaryomyces hansenii preferentially localized to and was abundant within incompletely healed intestinal wounds of mice and inflamed mucosal tissues of CD human subjects. D. hansenii cultures from injured mice and inflamed CD tissues impaired colonic healing when introduced into injured conventionally raised or gnotobiotic mice. We reisolated D. hansenii from injured areas of these...
