Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease, which may affect any area of the gastrontestinal tract from mouth to anus. The etiology is not clearly defined and rather uncertain. The incidence of the disease is geogra- phically unequal in world wide distribution. Male and female are equally involved. We experienced a case of CrohnDisease in 13 year old male child who complained abdominal pain, anorexia and blood tinged loose stool. A brief review of related literature is also presented.
