Abstract

Authors' conclusion: the findings of this study suggest a positive association between Helicobacter pylori infection (HP) and colorectal polyps in children, indicating that HP infection is a risk factor for the development of polyps.

Reviewers' commentary: with the methodological limitations of this study, it cannot be assured that HP infection is a risk factor for colorectal polyps in children. Studies with more powerful methodology to try to answer this question are needed.
