The timely management of pediatric Crohn's disease (CD), and specifically perianal CD, is important owing to the possible adverse effects on growth, development, and quality of life. Perianal involvement is increasingly common, with up to 62% of pediatric CD patients affected. Presently, literature addressing the management of perianal CD has focused primarily on adults, with findings that cannot always be extrapolated to the pediatric population. We aimed to review the rates of healing, recurrence, and need for surgical intervention in perianal CD to provide evidence-based recommendations for the ideal management in children.
