Crohn Disease of the Vulva without Gastrointestinal Manifestations in a 16-Year-Old Girl.


BACKGROUND:Crohn disease of the vulva is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose. There are limited reports describing treatment of this condition. OBJECTIVE:To describe the diagnosis and treatment of a 16-year-old girl with Crohn disease of the vulva, without onset of intestinal symptoms. METHODS:Crohn disease was diagnosed by histopathology. The patient was treated with corticosteroids and followed for 1 year. RESULTS:After the final diagnosis, cutaneous lesions responded rapidly to corticosteroid treatment, which was gradually stopped after 6 months. The disease was well controlled at the 1-year follow-up. CONCLUSION:Crohn disease of the vulva can develop alone without the onset of intestinal symptoms. Diagnosis relies on special pathologic findings. Corticosteroid treatment is effective for this condition.
