Patient

Q: My 12 year old son had a gi scope and it showed he had ulcers at the bottom of his stomach and some at the top of his intestine they took biopsies and they tested negative for H pylori he does not take any NSAIDS so my question is what else could be the cause of these ulcers

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that your son has other causes of the peptic ulcer. There can be causes like increased acid production or a Zollinger Ellinson tumour.

See a Doctor for antacid treatment. Hope this helps him. All the best.
