Pediatric Gastro-enterology

This guideline updates a prior concensus recommendation of the German Society for Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS) from 1996. It was developed by an interdisciplinary cooperation with representatives of the German Society for Microbiology, the Society for Pediatric Gastro-enterology and Nutrition (GPGE) and the German Society for Rheumatology. The guideline is methodologically based on recommendations of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF) for providing a systematic evidence-based consensus guideline of S3 level and has also implemented grading criteria according to GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation)...

Idiopathic ketotic hypoglycemia is the most frequent cause of hypoglycemia in children between 1 and 5 years of age. The symptoms and signs of hypoglycemia are often overlooked because they mimic signs of other common diseases like psychiatric disorders, migraine, gastro-enterological dysfunction, or visual disturbances. Glycemia and ketone bodies in the urine should be systematically investigated in such cases. Because hypoglycemia is a life-threatening event and can lead to severe neurological sequelae, intravenous administration of glucose is mandatory...

In this paper, a Working Group on Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux discusses recommendations for the first line diagnostic and therapeutic approach of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease in infants and children. All members of the Working Group agreed that infants with uncomplicated gastro-oesophageal reflux can be safely treated before performing (expensive and often unnecessary) complementary investigations. However, the latter are mandatory if symptoms persist despite appropriate treatment. Oesophageal pH monitoring of long duration (18-24 h) is recommended as the investigation technique of choice in infants and children with atypical presentations of gastro-oesophageal reflux...

The first classic description of celiac disease (CD) was published in 1888. The introduction in the clinical practice of the jejunal biopsy, in 1957, offered a powerful tool for a more objective approach to the disease. The correct diagnostic procedure for CD was finally established by a document of the European Society for Pediatric Gastro-enterology and Nutrition (ESPGAN) in 1970, and the ESPGAN suggestions were rapidly adopted by the scientific community. During these years, alternative and non-invasive diagnostic approaches were developed such as non-immunological (tests of intestinal absorption and permeability) and immunological (anti-reticulin, anti-endomysium and anti-gliadin antibodies, HLA antigens) tests...
