Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pediatric gastroenterology involves the diagnosis, treatment and management of GI and nutritional disorders in children. Gastrointestinal (GI) problems in children may be quite different from those of adults, not only in presentation, but also in types of diseases.

This Special Issue aims to provide an important update in the world of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition by covering various topics in this area, such as gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disorders, cow’s milk protein allergy, obesity and malnutrition. Moreover, this Special Issue aims to focus on providing valuable information regarding mechanisms, risk factors, diagnoses and treatments. Thus, we welcomed you to submit your work to this Special Issue to help increase the general awareness regarding the most important gastroenterological pediatric disorders.

Dr. Lorena Elena Melit
Guest Editor
