Crohn's adenocarcinoma of the small bowel is extremely rare. We report a patient with a 10-year history of nonspecific abdominal symptoms who was found on his first presentation to have Crohn's adenocarcinoma of the small bowel. Despite adequate surgical resection, prognosis for this condition is poor with 2-year cancer free survival of around 9%. Crohn's carcinoma should be suspected in patients with long-standing disease and those with and without excluded segments of bowel.
