Table 1 Distribution of the patients enrolled, grouped by age at diagnosis (group A, 5 to 10 years, versus group B, 11 to 16 years of age at diagnosis), by type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, gender and ethnicity. Disease location, CD behaviour, Growth (for CD) and Severity (for UC) are also displayed according to the Paris Classification [28]

From: Clinical course and outcomes of diagnosing Inflammatory Bowel Disease in children 10 years and under: retrospective cohort study from two tertiary centres in the United Kingdom and in Italy
