Abstract

A comparison of 23 children with inflammatory bowel disease presenting with musculoskeletal symptoms and 46 children with arthritis of other causes yielded significantly higher rates in the inflammatory bowel disease group of sacroiliitis, arthralgia, additive and recurrent arthritis, microcytic anemia, elevated inflammatory markers, and hypoalbuminemia. Clinical awareness of these findings could expedite diagnosis and treatment.
