A state of the art review in the BMJ updates the diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease in children and young people. Inflammatory bowel diseases are lifelong conditions that often commence in adolescence. IBD is of particular importance in young  people because of the potential negative effects on growth, development and psychosocial wellbeing. The authors review how to achieve sustained control of intestinal inflammation and monitor for potential complications of the disease and side effects of therapies.
