GARCIA ENCINAS, Carlos et al. Venous tromboembolism in a patient with Crohn disease with ileal stenosis. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.3, pp.260-263. ISSN 1022-5129.

Inflammatory bowel disease is associated with extraintestinal manifestations. Among these manifestations is the venous tromboembolism which presents a risk three times more than that presented in general population. We report the case of a 61-year-old male with a history of abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea and fever, with leukocytosis, and fecal samples containing leukocytes, partial ileal stenosis with multiple ulcers in the enteroscopy, with histologic findings compatible with Crohn’s disease. The patient has a good outcome with prednisone and maintenence azathioprine, presenting at the fifth month deep venous thrombosis of both lower extremities that resolvewith anticoagulation treatment

Keywords : Crohn disease; Venous thrombosis; Ileitis.
