Collagenous gastritis is a rarely encountered disease entity first described in 1989, and it is very rarely reported in children. We report the case of a 13-year-old boy with clinical, endoscopic, and histological findings of collagenous gastritis who reported rapid and sustained symptom resolution on a gluten-free diet.

The need for early paediatric gastroenterology referral including oesophagogastroduodenoscopy with multiple tissue biopsies as part of a broad diagnostic workup in children with non-specific gastrointestinal symptoms is highlighted to improve diagnostic yield and enable accurate histologic diagnosis, so that appropriate therapy can be timeously applied.

The results indicate that childhood-onset CG is rare and has a chronic disease course, and serum calprotectin and amyloid A represent novel candidate biomarkers of inflammatory activity in CG. Expand
The differential diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori negative gastritis
The first step is to exclude a false negative result of the search for HP, by ensuring that both antral and oxyntic mucosa are present, and identification of marked reactive changes, such as intestinal, pseudo-pyloric, pancreatic metaplasia that may suggest a diagnosis of (HP associated or autoimmune) atrophic gastritis.
