Fistulas are not always due to Crohn's disease: an unusual groin abscess.Am J Gastroenterol. 1993 Jan; 88(1):120-1.AJ
A 38-yr-old white female with Crohn's disease was admitted for right hemicolectomy to treat an enterocutaneous fistula of 4 yr duration. At laparotomy, it was found that the fistula was related to an appendiceal diverticulum, rather than Crohn's disease, and simple appendicectomy was curative. The literature is reviewed.
