[Extra-intestinal manifestations associated with Crohn's disease].

Extra-intestinal manifestations (EIM) associated with Crohn's disease (CD) are frequently observed and can manifest as either the initial symptom or develop later in the disease course following gastrointestinal symptoms. The most common EIM affect the joints, skin, or eyes, with some correlating with active CD activity while others may occur during periods of inactivity. EIM can affect both pediatric and adult CD patients, potentially reducing their quality of life if not promptly identified and treated. Thus, emphasizing the prevalence and clinical presentation is essential to initiate appropriate diagnostic assessments and effectively treat both EIM and the underlying CD. In this case series, we present two pediatric and one adult case where EIM preceded CD diagnosis, resulting in delayed CD diagnosis. Additionally, we outline the most prevalent EIM, their epidemiology, and associated symptoms.
