Title:  Crohn’s disease of the mouth: report of a case

Abstract:  Aim Crohn’s disease is a chronic, inflammatory process, probably immunologically mediated, that may affect any segment of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, usually in a discontinuous fashion. Oral manifestations are important clinical findings in Crohn’s disease. Case report Description of a young male with oral manifestations of Crohn’s disease is detailed and the current literature is briefly reviewed. Past medical history and oral clinical examination of the patient were analysed. He was treated with systemic prednisone. The case reports a significant reduction of lesion after six months of treatment.
