Abstract

Objectives: The aim of the study was to determine the frequency of portal gastropathy (PG) and duodenopathy (PD) in children, to document the correlation of various clinical and laboratory parameters associated with portal hypertensive gastroduodenal lesions, to compare the endoscopic portal hypertensive lesions with different histologic findings, and to evaluate the use of a possible histologic scoring system.
