Helicobacter pylori and gastroduodenal diseases in our patients: 9 years’ experience

It has been demonstrated that Helicobacter pylori work together with other factors to cause diseases of the upper digestive system such as stomach and duodenal ulcers, gastritis, duodenitis, but also malignant diseases such as stomach cancer and MALT limphoma Infections are frequent in children especially in developing countries. This paper shows the results of nine years of work on the diagnostics and treatment of Helicobacter pylori in our patients. Biopsy of the mucous membranes of the stomach was carried out in 461 patients. Helicobacter pylori was found in 126 samples. It was most often associated with gastritis, in 70.63% of cases, whilst in only 4.76% with a duodenal ulcer. In 9.52% cases gastroduodenitis was shown, in 0.79% a ventricular ulcer and in 1.58% esophagitis. In 12.69% of cases the results were normal.
