Abstract

The peptic disease is not the commonest cause of recurrent abdominal pain, among the organic aetiology. Only recently the gastric disease as cause of abdominal pain has been described in pediatric age. We have studied 11 children aged 6 to 12 years, who were examined for recurrent abdominal pain. We found that this symptom was due to chronic gastritis. We have valued these patients on the basis of the clinical manifestations, endoscopic and biopsy findings. A family history of peptic disease was found to be highly significant. We can therefore consider the gastritis as a possible organic aetiology of recurrent abdominal pain after ruling out any other organic causes.
