PMID: 35352509.


Pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (p-IBD) is a chronic relapsing gastrointestinal disorder of childhood with long-term morbidity. Several extraintestinal manifestations are described, the most common being joint pain and/or inflammation. However, patient and disease characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of p-IBD-associated musculoskeletal disease are not well established. Our study aims to summarize the recent literature on the epidemiology of musculoskeletal manifestations in p-IBD in the era of biologics.
