Dr. Laving makes a presentation titled ‘Updates in Management of H. Pylori Infection in Children’.

Dr. Ahmed Laving, a senior lecturer at the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, gave a lecture on ‘Updates in Management of H. Pylori Infection in Children’ at the Infectious Disease Society of Kenya (IDSK) meeting at Nairobi Hospital on 17.06.2019.

He emphasized that as per current paediatric guidelines, a ‘test and treat’ strategy for H. Pylori is not recommended in children. Helicobacter pylori is highly prevalent in developing countries and is not associated with abdominal pain unless it has actually resulted in peptic ulcer disease. Since PUD is uncommon in children, H. Pylori infection should only be considered if children have persistent dyspeptic symptoms over several weeks not responding to regular antacid treatment.
