Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease, which may be associated with a variety of extraintestinal complications,  including ocular involvement. However, retinal vascular involvement is noted to be uncommon. We present 2 rare cases of retinal vein occlusion associated with Crohn's disease.

Key words:  ocular involvement , inflammatory bowel disease , retinal vein occlusion
