Complications Arising Out of Crohn's Disease in Child

Complications Arising Out of Crohn's Disease in Child

If you are finding certain symptoms like stomach paincramping, frequent diarrhoeaweight loss of your child or fever, then there are chances that he is suffering from Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease is a bowel disease that causes swelling and inflammation along the digestive tract of your child. Mostly, it affects the end of the small intestine, but it can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anus.

Causes behind the disease: It is not common in children, but if your child is showing symptoms, then one of the following may be the reason:

  1. Immunity system of the child,
  2. Genetics, and
  3. Environment.

The main cause behind such a disease can be any of the above. However, it has been found that if you have someone suffering from this disease in the family, then your child has more chances of getting affected by it.

Diagnosing Crohn's disease: If you find the above-mentioned symptoms in your child, then it is better to take him or her to a doctor. Mostly, this disease is chronic in nature, meaning that it will continue even if it is treated. However, with proper treatment the symptoms can be reduced.
For diagnosing this disease the following tests may be done

  1. Different lab tests that include a blood test for blood count and white blood cell count, and stool test to look for the bacteria that cause the inflammation and urine.
  2. X-Ray for detecting whether your child is suffering from Crohn's disease and what is the exact position of it in the digestive tract.
  3. If further required, they may do an endoscopy to find out the exact location and get more details.

Complications arising out of Crohn's disease: If your child is suffering from this disease and is left without treatment for long, he or she may suffer from the following complications.

  1. When the disease thickens, it may obstruct the intestinal walls by swelling of the intestine. Thus, the space from where the digestive matter passes becomes less and may lead to bowel obstruction.
  2. Fissures may develop at the mucus membrane of the anus.
  3. Fistulas or ulcers can occur as they tunnel through the affeced area to the nearby tissues. All these are painful for your child to bear.
  4. Your child cannot absorb the nutrients of the food like any other child and hence there are chances that they suffer from nutritional deficiencies.

With such problems that may not seem very huge in the beginning, your child may lose his appetite and forget about normal living.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user I can understand the mental state and agony that yur heart has to bear it Its quite unfortunate to know that the apple of yur eye has to undergo sx at such tender age. Its true that hernia in pediatric age group are bilateral. And.both doesnpt manifest at same tym. Wel it would sound awkward if I ask yu to relax and do not panic. However the right thing to do is to get a usg done and consult a pediatric surgeon. The brighter part of the ailment is that sx at this stage are actualy less traumatic. The scars heal well and results are fine. The babies donot even remember the sx wen they grow up. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your report is concerned the test report is negative so she has no typhoid fever at all. So do check her CBC with differential and take right antibiotics as per clinical findings. Hope that helps.

Hi Doctor, My son aged 1.5 years is suffering from rickets which I come to know yesterday so please suggest me the best treatment and time required to cure it completely. Also suggest if any kind of lab test can be done to monitor the progress.

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics

Rickets is disease caused by bony changes in patients due to deficiency of Vitamin D which further leads to altered calcium and phosphorus metabolism. So it can be monitored by bony changes, vitamin D levels, bony enzymes like serum alkaline phosphatase, parathyroid hormone levels, x-rays, bone densitometry. Rickets is most commonly caused by vitamin D deficiency but it may be also due to other non vitamin D deficiency causes. Vitamin D deficiency may be due to poor intake ,poor absorption or excessive losses or poor activation of vitamin d to its active form by liver and kidney. The treatment will depend on cause.

My kid is 5.5 months old. He had blocked tear ducts when he was born but that was corrected by massage at 3-4 months. Now he has swelling under his eyes and he frequently rub his eyes and shows discomfort. I consulted a doctor she said the baby has cylindrical 2-3 number and at the age of 1 year glasses will be given him. Can please suggest if this is possible to identify number for such a small kid?

Using modern devices it is possible to observe powers in newborns Visually evoked response testing. These are tests that stimulate the eyes with either a bright light or special pattern. The infant is connected to a special monitor with attachments on the infant's head. The machine then records electrical activity in the brain as the lights and patterns are shown to infants.
