Background. Helicobacter pylori infection is most frequently acquired in childhood. After this organism is eradicated, the rate of reinfection is low. Thus, it is very important to diagnose and treat the disease appropriately in childhood, and to be able to assess eradication with certainty. Eradication of H. pylori infection is reported to reduce or eliminate abdominal pain and dyspeptic symptoms in children.
