A 35-year-old Caucasian male was referred to the rheumatology clinic with a 1-month history of knee and ankle pain, which had resolved by the time he was seen. He had previously been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, requiring total colectomy in which a section of the small bowel, including the terminal ileum, had been resected to form an ileo-anal pouch anastomosis. He subsequently had recurrent episodes of pouchitis which were treated with steroids and antibiotics. Six years later he developed florid mouth ulceration.
