Anogenital granulomatosis (AGG) is a rare chronic idiopathic disorder presenting as a painless swelling of the vulva, labia, penis, and/or anogenital area. Some AGG cases have been diagnosed along with Crohn’s disease (CD). We report a case of AGG that led to diagnosis of underlying CD, namely Cutaneous Crohn’s disease (CCD). We guess that CCD appeared in the anogenital region is equal to AGG with CD.
