Abstract

Patients with chronic renal failure have been reported to have an increased incidence of gastric diseases. Helicobacter pylori has been shown to be associated with chronic gastritis, especially of antral type. The aim of this study was the assessment of the frequency of Helicobacter pylori infection (detected by urease test and by histological examination) in chronically haemodialyzed patients (8 men and 11 women) and in age- matched control group (9 men and 11 women), in whom histopathological symptoms of antral gastritis were detected. The studies were performed during routine endoscopic examinations. Helicobacter pylori infection was indicated in 58% of the haemodialyzed patients and in 60% with the control group. The difference was not singnificant (chi-square test). Our results are similar to the sparse literature data, and confirm that end-stage renal failure treated with chronic haemodialysis did not seem to affect the possibility of Helicobacter pylori infection.
