Neutrophils within epithelial structures, such as the crypt wall (cryptitis), or the crypt lumen and wall (crypt abscesses) or in association with crypt damage (crypt destruction) are helpful for the diagnosis.

 THE MERCK MANUAL, Sec. 3, Ch. 31, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
The earliest mucosal lesion of Crohn's disease is crypt injury in the form of inflammation (cryptitis) and crypt abscesses, which progress to tiny focal aphthoid ulcers, usually located over nodules of lymphoid tissue.
Eosinophilic gastroenteritis generally has prominent gastric involvement (rare in Crohn's disease) and is often associated with peripheral eosinophilia, which is the clue to diagnosis.
Although spontaneous remission or medical therapy may result in a prolonged asymptomatic interval, established Crohn's disease is rarely cured but instead is characterized by intermittent exacerbations.
