Abstract

We describe a 7-year-old child who developed right knee arthritis unresponsive to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug therapy. Additional rheumatologic disorders including pleuropericardial effusion with tamponade supervened before the recognition of Crohn's disease involving the colon. Suppression of all sites of inflammation resulted from corticosteroid therapy. Aspects of diagnosis and treatment of these extraintestinal components of inflammatory bowel disease are discusscd.
