Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a common disease of the small and large intestine that can lead to severe morbidity and mortality in patients. There are many skin manifestations of IBD that can occur prior to, simultaneously with, or after the diagnosis. Erythema nodosum is manifested by tender subcutaneous nodules on the shins. Pyoderma gangrenosum causes large and painful skin ulcerations. Pyostomatitis vegetans can occur as small pustules in the oral mucosa. Other rare manifestations of IBD also include epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, Sweet’s syndrome, polyarteritis nodosa, metastatic Crohn’s, and nonspecific vesiculopustular reactions.
