Helicobacter pylori-fertozés - A diagnózis és a kezelés gyakorlati kérdései

Translated title of the contribution: Helicobacter pylori infection and practical questions of diagnosis and therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

According to our knowledge, Helicobacter pylori is a major factor in the pathogenesis of peptic ulcer disease. The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection is 70-80% in ulcer patients with the bacteria colonising the mucous surface of the antral mucosa. Eradication therapy against the bacteria leads to complete healing of ulcer disease in about 85-90% of cases. Indications for the eradication and recommended treatment modalities are outlined in several consensus reports; however, in everyday practice a case by case decision is necessary. Present paper summarises two different cases. In the first, the patient has suffered from several relapses of ulcer disease and a successful eradication was performed. Despite of the healing of the ulcer, this patient continued to have prolonged dyspeptic symptoms which called for maintenance antisecretory therapy. The second case is an example that even in a Helicobacter pylori infected patient there could be other reasons for the ulcer pathogenesis. Thorough examinations revealed duodenal manifestation of Crohn's disease as the background. The message of presented cases is that in each patient individual adaptation of diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms is recommended.
