abstract

  • We compared the severity of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease in South Asians with Whites in the US. South Asians more commonly presented with poor weight gain, developed fistulas, and received treatment with antibiotics, methotrexate, adalimumab, and steroids. South Asians appear to have a more complicated presentation and course of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
