Metadata[+] Show full item record
Infection with Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) can lead to chronic gastritis and is associated with both dyspepsia and the development of peptic ulcer disease. Chronic infection also increases the risk of gastric adenocarcinoma and lymphoma. Current guidelines1 recommend a “test and treat” strategy for adult patients younger than 45 years who present with persistent dyspepsia.
