Uveitis_in_multicenter_IBD_pop_-_Schaefer.png

Purpose: Uveitis has long been recognized as an extraintestinal manifestation of inflammatory bowel disease. The prevalence of uveitis in the pediatric IBD population has only been studied in small groups of IBD patients in single-center studies. Evaluating the prevalence of uveitis in the ImproveCareNow database will allow us to gain a much better appreciation of the prevalence of uveitis in the pediatric IBD population and learn more about possible risk factors.

Primary/Secondary Outcomes:

  • Primary Outcome: Assess the prevalence of uveitis in the pediatric IBD population
  • Secondary Outcome: Find associated risk factors for uveitis in the pediatric IBD population

Study Period: Patients enrolled between 2006 and 2016

Recruitment Status: Closed
