Although gastrointestinal tract is frequently involved, small intestine is a relatively uncommon site of origin, and only 9% involves jejunum.[1] Multiple superficial ulcers, causing significant stenosis, normal ESR, and good response to glucocorticoids, were typical characteristics of CMUSE.[2] However, since the ulcerations were localized to the mucosa and submucosa instead of transmural inflammations, the diagnosis of CMUSE was questioned when the patient encountered intestinal perforation.
At this time, a presumptive diagnosis was CMUSE, according to the clinical diagnostic criteria.
Most aforementioned studies demonstrated case series of patients with CMUSE, which were mainly diagnosed during adulthood and only few were diagnosed before the age of 10 years.
[2] informed that Okabe and Sakimura reported first cases of CMUSE in Japan in 1968.
