Özet

Crohn's Disease (CD) is a chronic granulomatous inflammatory bowel disease which may also involve the extraintestinal organs such as joints, liver, skin and perianal tissue. Involvement of the aerodigestive tract is quite rare in CD. We report a 16-year-old girl with CD and nasal perforation as an extraintestinal manifestation of the disease.
