Gastroduodenal, ileocolic and perianal Crohn's disease.

T Martins, F Correia, P Gonçalves, R Proença, S de Sousa, R Dias


The authors present a case of Crohn's disease that initially showed common localisations, and later a rare gastro-duodenal involvement. When the definitive diagnosis of the latter was reached there were already signs of obstruction at the exit of the stomach. Treatment with Prednisolone I.M. and Omeprazole was not successful, and surgery was necessary as a last recourse to resolve the obstruction. A theoretic revision of the main clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of this rare from of involvement of Crohn's disease is also presented.
