Background: Lymphoid follicles (LFs) have been suggested to play a role at the early stage of Crohn's disease (CD) lesions. In the small bowel, LFs are grouped, forming Peyer's patches, which develop early in fetal life, grow in size and number until puberty, and undergo involution. In contrast, colonic LFs are isolated and undergo little change during life. As a result, if LFs play a role in the occurrence of CD lesions, the distribution of ileal and colonic lesions is expected to be altered… Expand
Ileal Lymphonular Hyperplasia Is Not Associated With NOD2/CARD15 Mutations
TLDR
It is suggested that genotyping NOD2/CARD15 may help to distinguish LNH from inflammatory bowel diseases in selected patients, and strengthen the lack of association between CD and LNH that has been previously reported. Expand
Manifestations of small bowel disease in pediatric Crohn's disease on magnetic resonance enterography
TLDR
MRE in the pediatric population often demonstrates increased contrast uptake, bowel wall thickening, and perienteral lymphadenopathy in CD, with more chronic small bowel changes seen commonly in adults and solitary jejunal involvements are less commonly seen. Expand
Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the Baby to Baby Boomer: Pediatric and Elderly Onset of IBD
TLDR
Onset of disease at either spectrum of age requires careful management and treatment, with both unique disease- and age-appropriate factors carefully considered. Expand
Pediatric onset Crohn's colitis is characterized by genotype‐dependent age‐related susceptibility
TLDR
In early‐onset pediatric CD, children with NOD2/CARD15 mutations demonstrate more ileocolitis and less isolated ileitis, suggesting that this phenotype is associated with genes that lead to a specific phenotype of early-onset disease. Expand
Pediatric inflammatory bowel disease: specificity of very early onset
TLDR
It is found that females are less prone than males to develop monogenic disorders, which have X-linked heritability in several cases and the Crohn’s Diseases (CD) subtype seems to be suggestive of monogenic Disorders. Expand
Management Challenges in Adolescents with Crohn’s Disease-Current Practice
TLDR
In cases of growth impairment and osteopenia, treatment should be intensive aiming at promoting complete mucosal healing and, in turn, improved growth and bone formation. Expand
Long-term outcomes for children with very early-onset colitis: Implications for surgical management.
TLDR
Almost one quarter of patients with very early-onset colitis originally diagnosed as UC or IBD-U had a reclassification in diagnosis to CD over time, suggesting that J-pouch reconstruction should be delayed until adolescence in children with veryEarly-onsset colitis. Expand
Upper gastrointestinal tract phenotype of Crohn's disease is associated with early surgery and further hospitalization
TLDR
Chinese CD patients more often had the L4 phenotype, which predicted the need of subsequent hospitalization, and the cumulative probability of major surgery was significantly higher in the L 4 than in the non‐L4 group. Expand
Distinct phenotypes of children with perianal perforating Crohn's disease.
TLDR
Pediatric CD patients who develop PF while on therapy for CD have a more severe phenotype and are more likely to require diverting ileostomy or colectomy compared to those who present with PF-CD. Expand
Current issues of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease in Korea
TLDR
Early aggressive therapy using biologics has recently been proposed for peripubertal children to prevent growth failure and malnutrition. Expand

Inflammatory bowel disease in children 5 years of age and younger
TLDR
Failure to thrive, at the time of presentation, is indicative of a final diagnosis of CD or IC, not UC, and linear growth failure is a common finding in patients with early onset CD. Expand

TLDR
The quality of life noted at the end of the study period was considered only fair in the majority (70%) of CD patients, in contrast to those with UC, 75% of whom considered life good after 2 years of illness. Expand
The role of Peyer's patches in the age-related incidence of Crohn's disease.
TLDR
When the age-related incidence of Crohn's disease was plotted for all countries from which such data were available, the peaks of greatest case frequency occurred at ages 15 to 25 years and paralleled a similar peak representing the number of Peyer's patches as a function of age, suggesting that Crohn’s disease may develop as an inflammatory process specifically targeting these important lymphoid structures.

It is clear from recent findings in the so-called cathartic colon that degeneration of the mural plexuses may well be present in many spina bifida children and young adults whose intestinalExpand
Distribution of Peyer's Patches in the Distal Ileum
TLDR
Peyer's patches are concentrated in the distal 25 cm of ileum but extend proximally for 200 cm, and the variation in their size, shape, and distribution in different individuals is greater than often appreciated and may influence the presentation of diseases centered on these structures. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest a shift in presentation and diagnosis from UC towards CD, but also a net increase in IBD. Expand
Crohn's disease: influence of age at diagnosis on site and clinical type of disease.
TLDR
Stratification of Crohn's disease by age at diagnosis provides support for the concept of genetic heterogeneity and is associated with more complicated disease and a greater likelihood of having affected relatives. Expand

TLDR
This demographically diverse pediatric IBD cohort revealed age-related variation in the distribution of IBD phenotype, with a high prevalence of isolated colonic disease in young children. Expand

TLDR
Vascular localization of granulomatous inflammation suggests that the intestinal microvasculature contains an early element in the pathogenesis of Crohn's disease. Expand
Clinical features, morbidity and mortality of Scottish children with inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
From the Scottish Hospitals in-patients statistics for the years 1968-1983, case records of samples of patients with onset of symptoms at or before age 16 years were examined to establish the features, morbidity and mortality of unselected cohorts of young patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
