Sounds like there is some erosion happening, could be the start of an ulcer, also sound like there is an infection with all the WBCs...since its the illeum it sound like it could be chrones..Talk with your doc..they should know what it all boils down too

Re: What this report means?

Yes, I agree. You do have continuing inflammation and ulcers in that area which does sound like Crohn's.

Was this scope a colonoscopy?

It's all a matter of perspective!
