Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is characterized by an abnormal proliferation of bacterial species in the small bowel. It has been shown that patients with Crohn's disease (CD) have a higher risk of SIBO development. The aim of the present study was to investigate SIBO prevalence in CD patients, possible clinical predictors of SIBO development and response to antibiotic therapy.
