One of the common lesions in Crohn's colitis is erythema nodosum, a septal panniculitis that may appear before diagnosis or in conjunction with flare up. We report a case of Crohn's colitis where the presenting sign was neutrophilic lobular panniculitis with few granulomas. The possibility that this case represents a forme fruste of metastatic Crohn's is suggested. As skin biopsies are not usually performed by gastroenterologists in erythema nodosum-like skin lesions in Crohn's patients it may well be that the incidence of lobular panniculitis is higher than reported in the literature.
