Abstract

A case of pharyngeal perforation in a patient with Crohn's disease is described. Crohn's disease may complicate intubation either because of oral lesions changing the local soft tissue architecture, or because chronic corticosteroid therapy has lessened tissue resistance to perforation. Consideration may be given to adjunctive measures when intubating patients with a history of Crohn's disease.
