Dermatologic Manifestations of Crohn Disease in Children: Response to Infliximab

  • Gastroenterology
  • Pediatrics, Perinatology and Child Health

ABSTRACTDermatologic extraintestinal manifestations of Crohn disease may be refractory to treatment with corticosteroids and immunomodulators. The authors describe four children with Crohn disease with dermatologic manifestations: pyoderma gangrenosum, orofacial involvement, erythema nodosum, and idiopathic lymphedema. These dermatologic conditions were unresponsive to conventional therapy but had rapid and sustained response to the anti–TNF‐α antibody infliximab. No adverse reactions occurred. Infliximab should be considered for treating the extraintestinal dermatologic manifestations of Crohn disease in children.
