Abstract

The presence of Helicobacter pylori (HP) was studied histologically in 574patients who underwent Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy. The most common gastroscopic findings were gastritis in 300patients (52.2%) followed by normal gastroscopy in 119 patients (20.7%), duodenal ulcer in 67 patients (11.7%), gastric ulcer in 20 patients (3.5%), duodenitis in 59patients (10.3%) and other findings in nine patients (1.6%).

Histological examination of all574patients showed that 442 (77%) with positive HP tests had different histological abnormalities. Negative tests for HP occurred in 132 patients (23%) of whom 51 (38.6%) had normal histology, 39 (29.6%) had active chronic gastritis and 42patients (31.8%) had inactive chronic gastritis.
