Crohn’s diease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease with chronic transmural inflammation of the intestinal wall and can be observed from oral cavity to anus. There is an increasing rate of CD in children. Surgery has a role in the management of this entity when medical treatment is unsuccessful. In this review article it is aimed to review the general characteristics of anorectal disease in children with CD and principles of management are discussed under the light of relevant literature.
