Abstract

FERNANDES, Marcelo D’Ambrosio et al. Metastatic Crohn's disease without intestinal clinical manifestation. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.6, pp. 651-654. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000600011.

The authors report the case of a 47-year-old female patient with dispersed ulcerated skin lesions that appeared 7 years before medical follow-up. Histopathological and endoscopic findings of such lesions led to the diagnosis of a rare disorder: metastatic Crohn’s disease. This diagnosis is even more relevant because there is no case report in the literature of Crohn’s disease restricted to cutaneous lesions, without major gastro-intestinal complaints.

Keywords : Crohn disease; Fistula; Granuloma.
