Vulvo-perineal Crohn俟Q製 disease is a rare condition either when it is isolated or associated with digestive manifestations. In the former condition named metastatic Crohn俟Q製 disease, it may constitute a diagnostic challenge and may be confused especially with other infectious or inflammatory disorders. We report a case of vulvo-perineal Crohn俟Q製 disease in a 46-year-old woman. A 46-year-old woman was diagnosed with a vulvo-perineal Crohn俟Q製 disease without digestive involvement. There was a chronic edema of the vulva with linear ulcerations on the inguino-crural regions and the buttocks fold, of 3 years. Treatment with metronidazole (1 g/day for 6 months) led to almost complete healing of the ulcerations with a sustained result. Physicians must be aware of the diverse manifestations and confusing presentations of vulvo-perineal Crohn俟Q製 disease.
