Resumo: The authors present the case of a 47 years old female, with no past or familial history, hospitalized due to vomiting and significant weight loss over the last 9 months, without abdominal pain, blood loss, constipation or diarrhea. Blood tests results revealed iron deficiency anaemia, seropositivity for ASCA, anti-transglutaminase antibody and HLA-DQ2. Upper GI endoscopy showed several ulcers in duodenal mucosa and an ulcerated stricture in D3; biopsies were taken and histopathology revealed transmural inflammatory chronic infiltrate, crypt loss and some areas of villous atrophy and intraepithelial lymphocytosis. The small bowel follow through confirmed 2 main strictures in duodenum and proximal jejunum. She was started on prednisolone, azathioprine and a gluten-free diet with an initial good response although relapse was detected one month later. In this last admission, parenteral nutrition was necessary due to her deteriorated nutritional state and she also started infliximab, with subsequent significant clinical and endoscopic improvement.
