Q: 45 year old male is admitted to ICU with exacerbation of Crohn's disease. Patient c/o aphthous ulcerations in mouth. What is the treatment?

Answer:   Aphthous ulcers in crohn's disease flare are important as clinically they can be so painful that may overshadow patient's abdominal complaints. Triamcinolone acetonide provides relief but actual treatment is taking care of intestinal flare which simultaneously resolves aphthous ulcers.
