Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) occurs as a result of chronic inflammation of all or part of the digestive tract and is classified as an autoimmune disease. The most common types are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These typically occur in certain age groups, however can occur at any age and have been associated with a wide range of dermatological conditions. These dermatology conditions may be a direct result of the IBD, or are an

associated condition also seen with other autoimmune diseases. We present a series of four patients who manifest a variety of these conditions, highlighting the vast scope of presentations possible and some of the difficulties faced in managing these complicated cases.
