Core Tip The core findings of this systematic review underscore the pivotal role of fecal calprotectin as a non-invasive marker for assessing intestinal inflammation in pediatric gastrointestinal diseases. Through an extensive systematic literature review, it was evident that fecal calprotectin provides valuable insights into disease activity, treatment response, and prognosis across various conditions, including functional gastrointestinal disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease, coronavirus disease 2019 induced gastrointestinal disorders, gastroenteritis, and cystic fibrosis-associated intestinal pathology. Despite its limitations in specificity and susceptibility to confounding factors, fecal calprotectin remains a valuable tool in pediatric gastroenterology, offering clinicians a means to diagnose, monitor, and manage gastrointestinal diseases effectively.
