The  medical  discipline  of  gastroenterology  deals  with  the  diagnosis  and  treatment  of  diseases  of  the  gut  and  intestinal  system  along  with  the  liver  and  pancreatic  systems.  Diseases afflicting adults are quite  different  from  those  afflicting  children.  In  children,  gastrointestinal  disorders  are  the most  common  illness  encountered  in  practice  with  most  hospital  admissions  for  children  pertaining  to  infections  or  other  diseases  of  the  gastrointestinal  system.  In  fact,  acute  gastroenteritis  (  acute  infection  of  the  gastrointestinal  system )  in  children  is  the  leading  cause  of  hospitalization  worldwide,  particularly  in  developing  countries  such  as  India.   Apart  from  infections,  various  other  diseases  including :  birth  defects  of  formation  of  the  gut,  liver  diseases,  pancreatic  diseases,  food  allergies,  etc  affect  children  throughout  the  pediatric  age  group.

Proper  diagnosis  and  treatment  is  essential  in  children  as  delay  can  be  detrimental  and  can  even lead  to  death.  Closely  associated  with  the  service  of  children’s  gastroenterology,  is  the  nutritional  service  department.  Nutrition  is  part  and  parcel  of  gastroenterology.  Growth  failure  in  many  children  is  often  due  to  gastrointestinal  disease  :  either  delayed  in  diagnosis  or  not  appropriately  treated.
