The use of antibiotics in pediatric CD has been guided primarily by evidence from adult studies, but this evidence is not strong and there are no pediatric studies. We have used antibiotics (generally metronidazole or ciprofloxacin) primarily for mild to moderate acute Crohn's colitis or ileocolitis, as well as for perianal disease. The use of antibiotics for maintenance of remission in CD in children has not been studied, but we often use these agents for 6 to 12 months.

^Editor's Note: The steps to avoid the development of antibodies to infliximab include (1) induction doses at 0, 2, and 6 weeks, (2) concomitant use of immunomodulators, and (3) continuous rather than episodic dosing (TMB).
