Abstract: Crohn’s disease is one of the inflammatory bowel diseases. The primary site of involvement of Crohn’s Disease is mainly gastrointestinal tract, but many pediatric patients present with extraintestinal oral manifestations as a first presenting sign which has been supported by several recent studies. The clinical signs and symptoms of Crohn’s Disease can differ from individual to individual and depend primarily on the site and behavior of the lesions, disease severity and activity, and also the involvement of extraintestinal sites such as oral cavity. Early recognising such oral lesions by dental professionals and further performing a biopsy, may expedite the diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease.
