There are a number of differences between the microscopic findings of primary gastrointestinal Crohn disease and that of MCD.
The histopathologic features of MCD compared to Crohn disease directly involving the skin (ie, perianal, peristomal, perifistular) are similar overall, with anatomic location being the main differentiating feature.
It has been suggested that antigens or immune complexes stemming from the gastrointestinal tract in primary Crohn disease travel through the circulatory system and deposit in the skin, creating perivascular granulomatous features seen on microscopic examination of MCD lesions.
20) Erythema nodosum is one of the most common cutaneous manifestations of Crohn disease and presents microscopically with granulomatous inflammation involving the septae of the subcutis (ie, septal panniculitis) with a mixed inflammatory infiltrate including neutrophils in the acute phase.
