Abstract

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, in children is on the rise. Pediatric patients with IBD are especially vulnerable to the physical and psychosocial morbidities of this disorder. Unique aspects of pediatric IBD patients compared to adult patients warrants an individualized approach to management regardless of age. This review focuses on the special aspects of pediatric IBD and the implications for the diagnosis and management of this disease.
