Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disorder with various extraintestinal manifestations. Vulva is rarely involved in Crohn's disease and occasionally may constitute the only sign of the disease. It is often unrecognized and can be confused with various disorders involving the vulva. Vulval Crohn's disease is often refractory to treatment. We describe a case of 30-year-old female presented with labial swelling, discharging sinuses and knife cut fissures and diagnosed as a case of vulval Crohn's without intestinal involvement, that was managed with oral steroids, sulfasalazine, and metronidazole.
