The most common symptoms of both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are mild to severe diarrhea and abdominal pain. Pain is usually caused by abdominal cramps caused by irritation of the nerves and muscles controlling intestinal contractions. Severe diarrhea can lead to dehydration, rapid heartbeat, and low blood pressure, and continued loss of small amounts of blood in the stool can lead to anemia. Sometimes children with Crohn's disease may experience constipation if the intestines become partially obstructed. In ulcera-tive colitis, constipation may be a symptom of inflammation of the rectum.

Fever, fatigue, and weight loss may also occur in IBD as may malnutrition because of the loss of fluid and nutrients due to diarrhea and chronic inflammation of the bowel.

Children with IBD may experience a slowdown in growth and a delay in the onset of puberty.
