Background: Enteropathic arthritis can occur in all age groups. Enteropathic arthritis is part of spondiloartropathy which is accompanied by chronic inflammation of the digestive tract (IBD). It mostly occurs in the age group of children and young adults with the same prevalence in men and women. Purpose: The following will discuss a case report of cavum oris constriction in patients with enteropathic arthritis. Methods: In this case, the patient is a 39-year-old female with complaints of inflammation in the digestive tract, including oral ulcers, complaints of abdominal pain and diarrhea. The patient was early diagnosed as arthritis enteropathy. In addition, sacroiliitis was found accompanied by limited movement of the hip joint and chest expansion. Result: The patient’s colonoscopy results showed an edematous mucosa accompanied by an ulceration process. To determine the condition of the mucosa in the upper digestive tract, capsule endoscopy is performed because the patient’s oral cavity is constricted. From the results of the examination, it was found that the patient was diagnosed with Chrons’ Disease. So that patients get sulfasazine therapy and bilateral labialis surgery. Conclusions: The prognosis in these patients was good because, the patient responds to therapy where the patient’s clinical complaints were diminishing.
