Although genitourinary complications of Crohn’s are well recognized, available information regarding their clinical course and management is sparse especially in the paediatric population. We report a myriad of urological complications in five paediatric cases, our experience from a tertiary paediatric urological and gastroenterological centre. All children with urological complications had severe Crohn’s disease which necessitated the use of immuno-suppressants including Infliximab. Three of four children healed and closed their fistulas after treatment, although failed to avoid future surgery, albeit for other reasons.
Conclusion: We suggest Infliximab should be considered as a treatment option but in the absence of a common consensus, treatment be tailored to individual cases.
