SANTIESTEBAN SAUQUE, Xiomelys et al. Chronic urticaria associated with Helycobacter pylori. MEDISAN [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1029-3019.
A descriptive and prospective study was carried out in 51 patients diagnosed with chronic urticaria, who were attended at the Outpatient Dermatology Department of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital of Santiago de Cuba during the first semester of 2008 to identify the etiology of this condition. The percentage as a summary measure and the chi-square test were used, considering their significance when p <0, 05. Female sex prevailed in the case material and Helicobacter pylori-positive gastric biopsies were found.
