Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn disease, ulcerative colitis, and IBD-unspecified, is a chronic immune-mediated condition of the gastrointestinal tract in which the goal of treatment is to induce and maintain durable remission. In pediatrics, there is a wide spectrum of presenting symptoms, but esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy are imperative to confirming the diagnosis. Treatment goals include achieving mucosal healing of the gastrointestinal tract, reaching growth potential, limiting medication toxicities, and optimizing quality of life for all patients.
