Anything possible : I suppose anything is possible, yet I have treated thousands of kids with reflux & never seen a kid with an ulcer in 3 decades. Most pediatric gastroenterologists i work with would not risk the scoping procedure to look for an ulcer until a kid had aggressive treatment for reflux for 6mo.
