Background: Iron deficiency anemia is one of the most prevalent anemia in children and pregnant women in the world. It has recently been revealed that H.pylori infection is one the most important causes of anemia. Materials and Methods: In this analytical study 100 anemic children were analyzed using total Iron, Ferritin, TIBC and H.pylori IgG assay. Data were collected using a questionnaire in which the following parameters were included: age, blood group, infancy nutrition, iron consumption, fatigue, weakness, height, weight, gastrointestinal, infection, parasitic and humoral diseases and demographic information. Results: The most prevalent blood group detected in the studied cases was group O (62%) while only 3% of the individual showed AB group. 79% were breastfeed, 9% bottle-feed, 12% used both breast and bottle-feeding methods. 37% of the children consumed iron during breastfeeding. A significant relationship was observed for the iron level in serum, ferritin, level of TIBC and elevated level of IgG titer to H.pylori. Discussion: The results of this study indicated that the significant relationship between the iron level, IgG titer and h.pylori infection rate could be referred to as an important factor influencing the anemia rate so that H.pylori IgG test could be checked for anemia together with the other routine tests
