  • Assessment and Management of Oesophageal Varices in Children December 2017

    These guidelines were constructed after a joint audit and review of practice at the three specialised paediatric hepatology centres in June 2016, and wider consultation with BSPGHAN Council, Liver Steering Group and Endoscopy Working Group. Although evidence based where possible, where not available they represent consensus. A detailed version of this guideline which includes review of evidence, together with reference to adult evidenced based guidelines is available.

IBD

  • Iron deficiency in Paediatric IBD
  • Diagnostic work up in very early onset IBD and IBD like disorders

    Very early-onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease (VEOIBD) refers to children with IBD diagnosed before the sixth year of life 1. This age group represents the minority of worldwide reported IBD cases with an estimated incidence of 4.37 and a prevalence of 14 per 100,000 children 2. Similar to adults with IBD, young patients present with abdominal pain, intestinal bleeding, diarrhoea and weight loss. Of additional concern in young children however, are the effects of chronic inflammation on growth and global development.
