Helicobacter pylori Infection in Children
Helicobacter pylori is a recently discovered bacterium that has quickly awakened an enormous interest when a possible link was discovered between this microorganism and a number of diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract [10, 11, 14]. For this reason H. pylori has been the subject of numerous clinical trials since its discovery 8 years ago. H. pylori-associated gastritis and peptic ulcer were initially reported in adult patients . However, there has recently been increasing interest in the incidence of this microorganism in the paediatric age group [3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12, 14].
