Pediatric Rome III criteria of functional dyspepsia (FD) has eliminated the mandatory use of upper endoscopy and recommended a symptom-based approach. In the absence of alarm symptoms, FD can be positively diagnosed in children having normal physical findings without exclusionary investigations. We aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Rome III guidelines to discriminate organic diseases from FD and to identify the predictors for positive endoscopic findings.
