BRIZUELA QUINTANILLA, Raúl A. et al. Helicobacter pylori and ulcerous disease. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 1999, vol.28, n.1, pp.5-8. ISSN 0138-6557.

1 212 patients with ulcerous syndrome who underwent endoscopy of the upper digestive tract and urease test to determine Helicobacter pylori were studied. 1 003 patients (82.75 %) were positive. The commonest diseases found by endoscopy with positive urease test were acute gastritis (100 %), chronic gastroduodenitis (97.75 %), duodenal ulcer (93.8 %) and stomach ulcer (65.16 %). It was proved the importance of searching this bacterium during the performance of endoscopy in all patients with ulcerous symptoms to apply an erradication therapeutics and to prevent its evolution towards more severe forms of lesions with the following loss of working capacity.

Keywords : GASTRIC MUCOSA [microbiology]; HELICOBACTER PYLORI [isolatim & purification]; UREASE [analysis]; STOMACH DISEASES [diagnosis].
