Abstract

We describe a patient with cutaneous Crohn's disease with extensive cutaneous ulcerations preceding the diagnosis of gastrointestinal Crohn's. The cutaneous lesions responded to mesalamine and prednisone. The patient has been maintained on a regimen of mesalamine alone without recurrence. We discuss available forms of mesalamine and their function in cutaneous disease.
