We describe the case of a 24 year old male with severe fistulating Crohn’s disease who failed mutliple modalities of medical and surgical therapy. We present objective and subjective evidence of disease remission after induction and maintenance treatment with leukocyte apheresis. This is the first described case of successful maintenance treatment of severe Crohn’s disease with leukocyte apheresis in the United Kingdom.
