ABSTRACT
We describe the cases of three children with chronic active Helicobacter pylori gastritis and iron-deficiency anaemia without evidence of oesophagogastro-intestinal bleeding. In all cases, long-standing iron supplementation became effective only after eradication of Helicobacter pylori. Conclusion: Iron-deficiency anaemia may be due to clinically inapparent H. pylori gastritis.
