Crohn's disease is an increasingly common health problem in children. If untreated or treated
inappropriately, it eventually results in complications. This report presents a case of suspected Crohn's disease
with inflammation of the pelvic region with a review of the literature.
Case: An 11-year-old female was suspected of having Crohn's disease, but laboratory tests and biopsy by endoscopy
failed to confirm the diagnosis. She had intra-abdominal inflammation, an enteroenteric fistula, and an abscess
that did not resolve despite antibiotic treatment for 1.5 months. She was referred to us for diagnosis. We performed
surgery with a provisional diagnosis of Crohn's disease; the pathology was consistent with Crohn's disease.
Conclusion: Surgery is indicated for the therapy and diagnosis of Crohn's disease under certain conditions. The
treatment of Crohn's disease requires a multidisciplinary team.
