Background Infection by Helicobacter pylori (H. pilory) affects 50% of the world population. Simple methods for its detection are now available. Objectives To identify H. pylori by using a monoclonal coproantigen technique in paediatric patients, and to determine its association with gastrointestinal diseases. Materials and methods The study included a total of 110 subjects aged 1 to 18 years. The study variables included: Family history of gastrointestinal disease, age, gender, gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as apparently healthy (asymptomatic) subjects. The monoclonal coproantigen test was performed on stool samples. Two groups, I symptomatic (n = 29), and II asymptomatic (n = 81) were compared using parametric and non-parametric statistics. Results Of the 110 patients, 59 (54%) were male. The relationship between a family history of gastritis and a positive for H. pylori, was significant for mothers (p
