Abstract
Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) is a term used to describe swelling of the orofacial area, mainly in the lips, secondary to an underlying granulomatous inflammatory process. OFG has been reported in association with systemic conditions such as sarcoidosis and Crohn's disease (CD). OFG may precede gastrointestinal disease, such as CD, by several years and may be the only obvious focus of the disease. Herein, we report a patient with OFG and non-symptomatic ulcerations of the ileocecal valve. The patient received intralesional triamcinolone injections every 2 weeks. After 6 weeks, all oral lesions showed marked improvement. The favourable treatment response of this patient suggests that intralesional triamcinolone can be used as a treatment option for patients with CD that have oral lesions. In addition, patients presenting with OFG should be carefully evaluated for gastrointestinal signs and symptoms.
