Abstract
Crohn's disease is known as regional enteritis. Extra-intestinal complications of Crohn's disease are relatively common. Extra-intestinal manifestations include skin ulcers, erythema nodosum, and arthritis. Even cases of the vulva involvement by Crohn's disease have been reported. Gynecologists did not usually consider Crohn's disease as a complication involving the vulva; gynecologists diagnose Bartholin's gland abscess first. Gynecologists have fully to consider history taking about disease characteristics. We reported recto-vulva fistula complicated by Crohn's disease and it is side effects after marsupialization operation.
Key Words: Crohn's disease, Vulva, Bartholin's abscess
