Successful Treatment of Collagenous Gastritis in a Child With a Gluten-Free Diet

WMJ. 2015 Dec;114(6):271-3.


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.
