Özet

Extraintestinal manifestations of Crohn's disease are common. Granulomas may occur in different tissues in Crohn's disease, although kidney granulomas are extremely rare. Although ocular complications of Crohn's disease are infrequent, most ocular manifestations include iritis, uveitis, episcleritis, scleritis, and conjunctivitis. Central retinal vein occlusion has been reported in a few patients with Crohn's disease. The choroidal neovascularization is related to inflammatory disorders such as panuveitis, sarcoidosis. We report a patient with Crohn's disease complicated by granulomatous interstitial nephritis, choroidal neovascularization, and central retinal vein occlusion.
