Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the alimentary tract, usually involving the ileum and proximal colon, which is sometimes associated with extra intestinal manifestations. Urologic complications of CD are rarely reported in literature. CD-related complications involving the urinary tract include infections and urolithiasis as the most common manifestations. Rare more serious occurrences associated with penetrating type disease include ureteral obstruction and enterovesical fistulization. Here, a rare case of CD complicated with a recto-scrotal fistula and the scrotal abscess is presented.
