Carcinoma is a recognized but rare complication of small bowel Crohn's disease. This case series emphasizes the importance of considering this diagnosis in patients with small bowel Crohn's disease. We report three cases in which patients were treated for presumed exacerbations of Crohn's, but were subsequently found to have underlying small bowel adenocarcinoma. This case series will demonstrate the need for the surgical assessment of patients with long-standing symptomatic Crohn's disease that fails to settle with conservative management.
