My son was recently diagnosed with crohns colitis. He took Accutane roughly 5 to 6 years prior. Is this something his gi specialist should know? Would it effect which treatment would be best.

There are different studies showing different risk of accutane to impact IBD. It is best to discuss this with your GI doc.
