Abstract

A 39-year-old white woman with longstanding Crohn’s disease presented with the rare complication of granulomatous bronchiolitis. Rapid resolution after inhaled budesonide is highlighted, as this is the first case described in the literature successfully treated without the need for systemic therapy. This less toxic approach to therapy is warranted in granulomatous bronchiolitis of Crohn’s disease to avoid unwanted side effects of steroids and infliximab.
