Abstract

A 34-year-old man with an 8-year history of outbreaks of oral and genital ulcers presented with high fever and skin lesions that had developed 21 days earlier, without abdominal pain. Computed tomography revealed intestinal perforation requiring surgery. After treatment with corticosteroids and azathioprine proved to be ineffective, it was switched to adalimumab.
