Helicobacter pylori infection It is the most frequent cause of gastritis and gastroduodenal ulcer. (peptic ulcer). Most people do not realize they have a Helicobacter pylori infection because, although the infection rarely resolves on its own and often persists for a lifetime, it only causes symptoms in a small percentage (10-25%) of those infected.
Once gastric infection occurs, an inflammatory response develops in the stomach, causing chronic gastritis. Although as stated above only a small percentage of patients will develop symptoms despite suffering from this gastritis, it seems to depend on both host factors and the Helicobacter Pylori strain causing the infection.
Helicobacter pylori infection has been shown to is the main cause of gastroduodenal ulcer and its complications and its pathogenic role in the development of the gastric cancer and gastric MALT lymphoma. Sometimes the symptoms are not so intense and only manifest as gastric discomfort and poor digestion, which is known as functional dyspepsia, which often improves by treating the infection by this bacterium.
