Refractory iron-deficiency anaemia due to silent Helicobacter pylori gastritis in children.

Abstract

We describe the cases of three children with chronic active Helicobacter pylori gastritis and iron-deficiency anaemia without evidence of oesophagogastrointestinal bleeding. In all cases, long-standing iron supplementation became effective only after eradication of Helicobacter pylori.

CONCLUSION

Iron-deficiency anaemia may be due to clinically inapparent H. pylori gastritis.
