Multiple enterogluteal fistulas, Crohn's disease: A case report
Keywords:Crohn’s disease, Fistulas, Ileocecal resection
Crohn's disease is a type of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) of unknown etiology that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus and shows extra-intestinal involvement. It characteristically shows skip lesions. This case report reported in 2018 describes a 40 years old Moroccan female not known to have documented evidence of significant Crohn’s disease. She was diagnosed with multiple fistulas that are a rare entity of patients with Crohn’s disease, which is itself a rare disease in African countries.
