Crohn’s Disease in Children

Gastroenterologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone treat children with Crohn’s disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, that causes chronic or recurring inflammation in the digestive tract. Unlike ulcerative colitis, another type of IBD that is limited to the colon, Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract.
