Objective: Data suggest an increase in the incidence of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We examined the trend of the incidence of IBD in children. Patients and Methods: A retrospective investigation was conducted on a cohort of children diagnosed with IBD between 1991 and 2002 who were registered in the IBD center at Texas Children's Hospital. The diagnosis of IBD was based on clinical, radiological, endoscopic, and histological examinations. Results: There were 272 children… 
Increasing Incidence of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Spain (1996–2009): The SPIRIT Registry
TLDR
In the last 14 years pediatric IBD incidence has almost tripled, with a more important CD increase, and a significant increase of incidence rates in the study period was observed.
Pediatric inflammatory bowel disease in Greece: 30-years experience of a single center
TLDR
A significant increase in CD with parallel decrease in UC during the last decade was found and most children received 5-ASA, steroids, and immunomodulators.
The natural course of inflammatory bowel disease-indeterminate from childhood to adulthood: within a 25 year period
TLDR
The clinical course of IBD-indeterminate in children over a 25 year period is determined to determine the need for I BD-ind determinate classification, especially when deciding on management and treatment.
Incidence of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Saudi Arabia: A Multicenter National Study
TLDR
Although the incidence of pediatric IBD in Saudi Arabian children is lower than suggested in the Western literature, there is a significantly increasing trend over time, however, decreased trend in the younger age group over time is identified.
Mortality and Cancer in Pediatric-Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
In this large pediatric population-based IBD cohort, mortality did not differ from that of the general population but there was a significant threefold increased risk of neoplasia.
Incidence, Clinical Characteristics, and Natural History of Pediatric IBD in Wisconsin: a Population-based Epidemiological Study
TLDR
A field-tested prospective system for identifying all new cases of IBD among Wisconsin children over an 8-year period confirmed a high incidence of pediatric-onset IBD in this Midwestern U.S. population.
Incidence Trends and Geographical Variability of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Slovenia: A Nationwide Study
TLDR
This nationwide study demonstrates that Slovenia is among the European countries with the highest PIBD incidence and its trends for the period of 2002–2010 and to assess the geographical distribution of P IBD in Slovenia.
The natural history of ulcerative colitis in a pediatric population: a follow-up population-based cohort study
TLDR
Pediatric UC is associated with high rates of EIMs and colectomy that are not dependent on age, gender, or race, but is associated on a high rate of proctitis among girls, and girls were twice more likely to develop proctritis.
Incidence and Paris Classification of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease
New epidemiological data suggest that the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing. As a result the burden of disease accounts for more strains to the health care system. The
The Ontario Crohn’s and Colitis Cohort: Incidence and Outcomes of Childhood-onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Ontario, Canada
TLDR
A case ascertainment definition of paediatric-onset IBD was validated using administrative data and the Ontario Crohn’s and Colitis Cohort (OCCC) was developed, demonstrating that Ontario has one of the highest worldwide incidence rates.

Incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in finnish children, 1987–2003
TLDR
The incidence of pediatric IBD almost doubled in Finland from 1987 to 2003 and surgical intervention was common early in the disease course, most common in young children.
[Inflammatory bowel diseases in children].
TLDR
The incidence of IBD is low in childhood and children with UC have more widespread disease than adults, while children with CD do not differ in clinical presentation, course or prognosis compared to adult onset CD.
Children with early-onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): analysis of a pediatric IBD consortium registry.
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.
Changing pattern of paediatric inflammatory bowel disease in northern Stockholm 1990–2001
TLDR
The results suggest a shift in presentation and diagnosis from UC towards CD, but also a net increase in IBD.
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.
Epidemiologic and clinical characteristics of children with newly diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease in Wisconsin: a statewide population-based study.
TLDR
The surprisingly high incidence of pediatric IBD, the predominance of Crohn's disease over ulcerative colitis, the low frequency of patients with a family history, the equal distribution of IBD among all racial and ethnic groups, and the lack of a modulatory effect of urbanization on IBD incidence collectively suggest that the clinical spectrum of I BD is still evolving and point to environmental factors contributing to the pathogenesis.
The Incidence of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the Netherlands: 1999–2001
TLDR
The incidence of IBD cases in the Netherlands is comparable with that reported in other European countries, and epidemiological studies using case reporting by physicians may be underestimates of true incidence rates.
Increasing Incidences of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Decreasing Surgery Rates in Copenhagen City and County, 2003–2005: A Population-Based Study from the Danish Crohn Colitis Database
TLDR
The incidence of IBD in Copenhagen increased noticeably during the last decades, time from onset of symptoms until diagnosis decreased markedly, extent of CD was related to age at diagnosis, and the risk of surgery was low in UC.
Clinical outcome of ulcerative colitis in children.
TLDR
The majority of pediatric subjects with ulcerative colitis remission is achieved in the first 6 months after therapy; thereafter disease is inactive in about 50% of patients during any given year of follow-up.
Challenges in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
It was recommended that the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America focus its initial efforts in pediatric IBD in 5 areas: the effects of inflammation on growth and skeletal development, the genetics of early-onset IBD, the development of quality improvement interventions to standardize and improve clinical care of children with IBD.
