Helicobacter Pylori

A spiral-shaped bacterium found in the stomach, which (along with acid secretion) damages stomach and duodenal tissue, causing inflammation and peptic ulcers.

Hepatitis

Inflammation of the liver resulting in liver cell damage and destruction. Hepatitis often originates from a virus and can be spread from your child to others.

Hirschsprung Disease

A condition which occurs when the intestinal wall is missing the cells which signal the muscles in the large intestine to push stool towards the anus, causing an intestinal blockage.

Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis

A narrowing of the lower portion of the stomach that leads into the small intestine, resulting in food not moving easily into the intestine for digestion.
