He was on treatment with azathioprine since 2 years. He now presented with painful oral ulcers since 4 days duration. He was admitted and evaluated for disease exacerbation. His CRP was elevated but fecal calprotectin came out to be normal. UGI endoscopy was done which did not reveal any ulceration in esophagus, stomach or duodenum.
