SUMMARY A case of a 24-year-old male with a prolactinoma who developed Crohn’s disease is described. He presented with fever, diarrhea, a perianal abscess and a past medical history of a prolactin producing adenoma of the pituitary gland, treated with bromocryptine. Crohn’s disease was finally diagnosed and the patient was successfully treated with 5- ASA, metronidazole, steroids and azathioprine. A possible causal link between the two conditions is discussed.
