Seasonality and pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
The researchers sought to determine whether disease activity in pediatric-onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is associated with a seasonal pattern. Studying 1325 patients with Crohn disease and 587 patients with ulcerative colitis, their findings do not support any strong associations between season of the year and disease activity in pediatric IBD.
