This article presents the case of a 49 year old male patient with a 23 year history of Crohn's disease, who was admitted to the hospital for the appearance of an abdominal mass in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. He reported the occurrence of abdominal distension and fullness for two weeks. Two years before he underwent ileocolic resection and six months later surgical treatment of a perianal localisation of his Crohn's disease. At admission, a large abdominal mass was found on physical examination. Pain was absent. Routine blood examination did not reveal abnormal values.
