Crohn's disease: Can it affect any part of the body? Does vaginal Crohn's exists?

Hi @Kathy#13‍,

Crohn's disease can affect the entire digestive tract (mainly the intestine, but also the stomach, esophagus, etc.).

In very rare cases, it also extends to the skin. The onset of skin symptoms, when they exist, can occur before, during, or after the onset of gastrointestinal symptoms. All areas of the skin may be affected, including the vulva.

Finally, Crohn's disease is sometimes accompanied by joint pain. There are no examples of Crohn's disease affecting other organs of the human body.

I hope that answers your questions.

Have a nice day!
