Orofacial granulomatosis has been suggested as a generic term encompassing the inflammatory manifestations of several different diseases including Crohn's disease (CD). Moreover, oral lesions are considered to be an important extra-intestinal manifestation of CD. Granulomatous cheilitis (GC) is characterized by recurrent swelling of the labial tissues, a granulomatous histology and has been recognized to be a possible extra-intestinal manifestation of CD and may follow, coincide with or precede the onset of inflammatory digestive disease. We report the case of an 18-year-old woman with CD preceded 3 years ago by a GC. The patient was successfully treated with anti-TNFα on symptoms of CD and GC. The orofacial and digestive lesions were initially controlled with perfusions of infliximab, however, an isolated recurrence of the orofacial lesions requires an increase in the perfusion rate from every 6 to every 8 weeks to maintain a complete and persistent remission of the cheilitis granulomatosa.
