Local depot methylprednisolone injection for painful anal Crohn's disease.

Treatment, by local depot methylprednisolone injection, of severe anal pain in Crohn's disease not associated with overt sepsis is reported. It has given dramatic relief in 5 patients, but has not been successful in 2 patients where anal disease was in continuity with severe rectal involvement. Treatment has been effective for greater than 1 yr, and no complication of the technique has been found on regular follow-up. When compared with previous attempts at treatment, the beneficial results attained with methylprednisolone injection suggest that the effect is more than a placebo response. Careful patient selection to exclude overt sepsis or severe rectal disease is recommended before proceeding to steroid injection.[1]
