[en] The authors report the case of a 55 yr-old woman suffering from Crohn's disease since 31 years with stricture and fistulas developed in the ileocolic junction and anorectal portion. Long-standing anorectal fistulas and stricture led to adenocarcinoma and finally fistulisation in the vagina. Diagnosis was made by perineal examination with biopsies under general anaesthesia. Treatment was first posterior pelvectomy with resection of the anterior wall of vagina. Secondarily, radiochemotherapy was administrated. The authors discuss the incidence and risk factors of carcinoma in Crohn's disease with chronic fistulas.
