Saddle nose deformity in a patient with Crohn’s disease

  • C Merkonidis (a1), S Verma (a1) and M A Salam (a1)

Abstract

Crohn’s disease is a chronic idiopathic inflammatory disease of the bowel, and in most cases it involves the small bowel and colon. Extraintestinal manifestations occur frequently and multiple organ systems may be affected. In contrast, nasal manifestations are extremely rare and only a few cases have been reported to date. Saddle nose deformity in a patient with Crohn’s disease has not been reported in the English literature. We report a case of such a deformity and the current literature on nasal manifestations in Crohn’s is reviewed. The normal diagnostic and therapeutic features are also discussed.
