Abstract

We describe a 44 year-old woman who presented with dyspnea and cough 5 years after initial diagnosis of ulcerative colitis. The evaluation of patient showed findings of large airway inflammation with tracheal wall thickening and mucosal irregularities. The etiology was investigated and was diagnosed as tracheobronchitis that is a rare extraintestinal manifestation of ulcerative colitis. She was treated with systemic corticosteroids and rapid clinical improvement was detected.
