Abstract

C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker for inflammation, was evaluated with other routine blood tests in children with newly diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease. Evaluation of CRP level helped identify additional patients found to have inflammatory bowel disease at endoscopy, although a sizeable number of patients with mild ulcerative colitis had a normal CRP level.
