Abdominal pain and dyspepsia are common symptoms at pediatric ages that can hide functional gastrointestinal disorders or can represent alarming signs of serious digestive disorders or systemic diseases. Therefore, accurate diagnosis of childhood and adolescence gastrointestinal conditions still represents a challenge, which guides appropriate therapeutic approaches. The development of age-adapted diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for conditions such as acute gastroenteritis, H. pylori-infection, celiac disease or inflammatory bowel disease was an important milestone for the daily practice of pediatricians worldwide, but several questions remain unanswered regarding the management of particular atypical clinical settings. This Special Issue aims to bring novel insights into pediatric gastrointestinal pathology and attract both pediatric gastroenterologists and interdisciplinary pediatric researchers. Moreover, authors are invited to report differential diagnosis problems as well as to focus on systemic, chronic disorders that can also engage the gastrointestinal tract.
