Core Tip The incidence, clinical presentation, cause, and outcomes of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) in children in Bahrain are unknown. We observed a significant increase in the annual incidence of GIB. Lower GIB (LGIB) was more common than upper GIB (UGIB). The most common cause of LGIB was inflammatory bowel disease. The most common cause of UGIB was gastritis. Causes of GIB varied with patient’s age and differed from that reported in other countries. No mortality was observed in any patient. These findings are essential to tailor management based on the most common causes and patient age.
