A case of a 44 year old woman with antrum gastritis and H. pylori infection was reported. After unsuccessful treatment of the disorder with bismuth and tinidazole, an auto-vaccine was prepared from the bacterium in order to eliminate the infection. After the first injection of the vaccine a generalised urticaria was observed. In the development of the skin eruptions a type I, and a type IV allergic reaction could be demonstrated using the H. pylori specific RAST-test and leukocyte migration inhibition respectively. After eradication of the bacterium by amoxycillin treatment, the clinical signs of both the gastrointestinal and allergic diseases disappeared.
