A descriptive and retrospective study of 989 patients with endoscopic diagnosis of chronic gastritis whose biopsies had been processed in the Pathology Department of Palma Soriano in Santiago de Cuba, was carried out during 2008-2014, aimed at determining the incidence of the infection due to Helicobacter pylori, for which the variables: age, sex, gastritis types, presence of the organism and its association with malignancies were also considered. In the series the 40-49 years age group (26,7 %) and female sex (69,0 %) prevailed; also, the superficial gastritis was more frequent (57,8 %) and the bacteria was found in 70,5 % of the sample, where only 0,5 was associated to malignancies

Keywords : Helicobacter pylori; gastric biopsy; gastritis; gastric adenocarcinoma; endoscopic diagnosis.
