Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease often presenting with extraintestinal manifestations. However, pulmonary involvement in CD is quite rare. We here report a case of CD with pulmonary manifestation as the first presenting sign. Thus, immune-mediated inflammatory disorders such as CD should always be kept in the differential list in case of unusual clinical symptoms or radiological signs of idiopathic pulmonary presentations.

Keywords: Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, extraintestinal manifestation, pulmonary disease, pulmonary manifestation of inflammatory bowel disease, biological.
