Abstract
Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal system and multiple extraintestinal organs. Right lower quadrant abdominal pain with fever may be mistaken as a acute appendicitis. Pancreatitis has rarely been reported as a complication of Crohn’s disease. However, we experienced one case of Crohn’s disease with pancreatitis : the histologic examination after appendectomy of a 12-year-old female child who complained about abdominal pain and high fever.
Key Words: Crohn's disease, Appendicitis, Pancreatitis
