Introduction
There are many similarities between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and allergic diseases, including similar epidemiological data, pathomechanism, clinical course and even treatment methods. So far, many studies of IBD comorbidity with other diseases, including allergy, but mainly in adults, have been conducted.

Aim
To analyse the prevalence of allergic diseases, i.e. food allergy (FA), cow’s milk allergy (CMA), atopic dermatitis (AD), allergic rhinitis (AR) and asthma in children with IBD.

Material and methods
The study included 105 IBD patients from the Department of Paediatrics, Allergology and Gastroenterology of Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz and 100 children without IBD from the Outpatient Clinics. The authors applied the validated questionnaire as a study method.

Results
At least one allergic disease was found in 26 (43%) IBD children. The allergological diagnosis was made in IBD children more frequently than in the control group (p = 0.04). The difference was more noticeable with regards to skin prick tests (p = 0.02). FA was the most common disease; it was noted in 19 (32%) IBD children; followed by: AD – in 13 (22%), CMA – in 12 (20%), AR – in 10 (17%) and asthma – in 6 (10%) children. The prevalence of allergic diseases in the control and study groups was comparable (p > 0.05). There was no correlation between age of IBD children and allergy (p > 0.05). Asthma was significantly more common in children undergoing biological treatment (p = 0.01).

Conclusions
Children with IBD should be constantly monitored by medical professionals, not only due to the underlying disease but also due to a possible concomitant allergic disease.
