Abstract

We report a 10-month-old infant who had arthritis as the initial clinical manifestation of ulcerative colitis. Arthritis is considered to be the most common extraintestinal manifestation of IBD in adults and children. This case emphasizes that arthritis may be the earliest manifestation of IBD even in the very young infant.
