Neurological complications of Crohn's ileitis have been reported, and the aetiology ascribed to vitamin deficiencies and iatrogenic treatment. In this report we describe a patient who developed multiple areas of nerve compression in lower and upper extremities. After failure of conservative treatment, she was successfully treated surgically. As far as we know this has not been reported before.
