Abstract

Acute neuropathic complications rarely develop in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. A case of acute peripheral neuropathy that developed only 4 weeks after a diagnosis of Crohn's disease (CD) is reported herein. Peripheral neuropathy can be a rare extraintestinal manifestation of CD. Early recognition and proper management of the neurologic complications are crucial for preventing the associated morbidity.
