Abstract

Aim: We aimed to determine the frequency of autoantibody antinuclear (ANA), peripheral anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (p-ANCA), anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibody (ASCA), anti-pancreatic exocrine gland antibody (PAb), goblet cell antibody (GAb) positivities in children with the complaint of chronic diarrhea and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We also purposed to explore the role of these autoantibodies in the differential diagnosis of IBD.
