Very Early Onset IBD (VEO-IBD) represents a heterogeneous group of early onset IBD children characterised by high morbidity and mortality burden. The management of these children is very variable which is not surprising considering the orphan nature of the condition and its wide heteogeneity. The rapid development of new genetic techniques might lead to significant early genetic discoveries and subsequent translation into curative therapy.
