Peptic ulcer disease is acid related disease which differs from gastritis & erosions in those ulcers typically extend deeper into the muscularis mucosa. There are 3common forms of peptic ulcers H. Pylori, NSAIDS, Corticosteroids &other causes have helped to further expand our understanding of PUD in children. The main aim or objective is to find out the epidemiology & treatment of PUD in children. By this we have came to know that prevalence of PUD in children is reducing day by day in many countries. The drugs used in this disease are Antibiotics, H2blockers, proton pump inhibitors, mucosal protective agents. Omeprazole & triple therapy is for H. Pylori. medications are adjunctive treatment in the treatment of Perforated peptic ulcer which reduce recurrent rate significantly. healing shown at 8week follow up with endoscopy was significantly higher in triple therapy eradication group. The surgery is preferred in patients who are not improved with medications. Now a days a new treatment was provoked to resolve the disease without complications i.e, self expandable metal stent treated with primary setting & drainage whose training &expertise is available.
