The etiopathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease remains unclear, with various extraintestinal features often found with the disease. Sometimes more than one extraintestinal finding is found in the same patient. In this case report, a patient with more than one extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease is presented. Extensive thrombi in the venous system and pyoderma gangrenosum in the left lower extremity was observed but there was complete recovery following treatment with both systemic and topical agents.
