Pathology of inflammatory bowel disease in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Accurate pathological diagnosis is essential to the optimal management of children with chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Although the conventional pathologic characteristics of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are generally familiar to clinicians and pathologists, they must also be aware of many potential diagnostic pitfalls resulting from variations on the classical pathologic paradigms, endoscopic-histopathologic discordance, biopsy sampling variations, and mimicry of inflammatory bowel disease by other disorders.
