Current management of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a relatively rare condition of childhood, although the wide range of presenting complaints, scope of complications, and choices of therapy for this condition make it particularly difficult to treat in children. Novel approaches to the management of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis have gained recent favor. This report summarizes the current medical and surgical management of IBD, recent advancements in clinical therapies, and particular aspects of IBD care for children.
