GONTIJO, João Renato Vianna; LEIDENZ, Franciele Antonieta Bianchi  and  SOUSA, Maria Silvia Laborne Alves de. Case for diagnosis. Metastatic Crohn's disease. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.4, pp.531-533. ISSN 0365-0596.

Metastatic Crohn's disease is a rare skin manifestation, defined by granulomatous skin lesions that are discontinuous to the affected gastrointestinal tract and histopathologically resembling inflammatory bowel lesions. Up to 44% of patients with Crohn's disease have cutaneous manifestations, of which metastatic lesions are the least common. We present a case of an adolescent with refractory Crohn's disease and persistent papules and plaques on the skin.

Keywords : Crohn's disease; Granuloma; Granulomatous disease, chronic; Skin manifestations.
