Özet

Objectives: Helicobacter pylori has been established as a major cause of gastritis and peptic ulcer disease in adults and children. H. pylori infection may also have a role in the development of some extragastrointestinal diseases, including iron deficiency anemia. The aim of this study is to investigate H. pylori-related changes in gastric physiology and histology and the relationship of these changes to iron deficiency anemia in children.
