Gastritis and Gastropathies of Childhood

  • James E. Dimmick
  • Gareth P. Jevon

Abstract

A skilled pediatric gastroenterologist with a flexible endoscope can thoroughly inspect and perform a biopsy in the duodenum, esophagus, and all zones of the stomach. That skill, with astute observation of gross anatomy of the stomach, combined with interpretative abilities of an experienced histopathologist, is the most assured way of defining pediatric gastropathies.
