Abstract

Background: Close association of nodular gastritis and Helicobacter pylori infection has been initially proved by various studies. There have been some studies reporting microscopic and histologic recovery in a short time after eradication therapy. But there is not enough data about the long-term course of this condition. The aim of this study is to document current clinical conditions, presence of H. pylori and results of endoscopic and histologic examination, after a long-term period, in children with endoscopically diagnosed antral nodularity.
