INTRODUCTION: Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic granulomotous illness associated with a number of extraintestinal manifestations that may involve most organ systems. Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP), a type of organizing pneumonia without the presence of evident pathogens, is a relatively rare extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease (CD). Besides, it may be easy for the patient who is under anti-TNFα therapy to develop some opportunistic infections such as fungal infection, especially in older patients.
