Abstract:Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic granulomatous inflammatory bowel disease which may also involve the extraintestinal organs such as joints, liver, skin and perianal tissue. Involvement of the nasal cavity is quite rare in CD. This case report presents a 28-year-old girl with CD and saddle nose deformity, alar collapse and palatal perforation as extraintestinal manifestations of the disease in addition to persistent truncus arteriosus-type 4.
