Gastroduodenal involvement by Crohn's disease is relatively rare and occasionally causes pyloric stenosis, for which medical therapy may be ineffective and surgery may be required. We report on a 44-year-old man patient in whom corticosteroids had a marked effect in reducing pyloric stenosis caused by Crohn's disease. A proton-pump inhibitor was not effective, and Helicobacter pylori was negative.
