Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

IBD diagnosis, in spite of clinically suspected form, lies on upper and lower endoscopy. Nevertheless endoscopic investigation is an invasive diagnostic tool especially in pediatric age. For this reason pediatricians are looking for mini invasive diagnostic algorithm in order to avoid unnecessary endoscopy. Up to date, while fecal calprotectin is a well established and confirmed intestinal inflammatory marker, on the other hand, new perspectives are opening on serological markers helpful in suspected diagnosis of IBD
