Extra-intestinal manifestations such as pyoderma gangrenosum and pulmonary nodules in Crohn's disease are rarely reported in the pediatric population. We report a 17-year-old female who presented with fulminant pyoderma gangrenosum and pulmonary nodules, as a diagnostic challenge. A review of treatment for Crohn's disease and pyoderma gangrenosum are discussed.
