FELEZ MOLINER, Inés et al. Arthritis as clinical presentation of inflammatory bowel disease in children. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2019, vol.117, n.3, pp.e270-e273. ISSN 0325-0075.

Inflammatory bowel disease in children has increased worldwide during the last decades. Clinical presentations are diverse and extraintestinal manifestations are the presenting sign in 6-35 % of patients, the most common of them being peripheral arthritis. An atypical clinical presentation results in diagnosis delay and, added to the greater seriousness of inflammatory bowel disease phenotypes in children, it entails more intestinal complications and sequelae. We describe two cases of inflammatory bowel disease with an initial symptom of lameness due to peripheral arthritis and enthesitis, respectively.

Keywords : Inflammatory bowel disease; Peripheral arthritis; Enthesitis, Crohn's disease.
