Abstract

Ménétrier disease, which is characterized by gastric rugal hypertrophy and hypoproteinemia secondary to a protein-losing gastroenteropathy, is uncommon in childhood. In this report we present the first case of Ménétrier disease in a child with co-infection of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
