Crohn's disease can be accompanied by extraintestinal manifestations. The authors report on a 39-year-old patient who presented with cheilitis granulomatosa as the first manifestation of Crohn's disease. Four years later, intestinal Crohn's disease was diagnosed. One year afterward, acute loss of visual acuity from optic neuropathy developed as another rare extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease.
