ABSTRACT
A 33-year-old woman with blurred vision and biopsy-proven Crohn's disease diagnosed one month ago was referred to our clinic for ophthalmic evaluation. Fundus examination disclosed bilateral, multifocal, atrophic, pigmented chorioretinal areas. Although choroidal involvement in Crohn's disease is very rare, ophthalmologists should be aware of the posterior segment complications in patients with Crohn's disease.
