Abstract

Objective: It was aimed to determine if there was a correlation between celiac disease (CD) and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) by comparing the prevalence of H. pylori in patients with and without CD. Materials and methods: The patients who were diagnosed with CD and tested for H. pylori and the patients who presented for gastroscopy and tested for H. pylori were evaluated retrospectively and the prevalence of H. pylori was compared. Results: Fifteen (48%) of 31 patients who were diagnosed with CD and tested for H. pylori were males and had a mean age of 33.1 ± 12.7 years (17–72). In the CD group, H. pylori was positive in 15 patients (48%), and 592 antrum biopsy that was performed were included as the control group. Of these patients, 299 (50.5%) were males and had a mean age of 44.4 ± 17.05 years (16–96). Helicobacter pylori were positive in 316 patients (53.4%). Helicobacter pylori prevalence was similar in the groups with and without CD (p > 0.5). Conclusion: Although the prevalence of H. pylori was lower in celiac patients compared to the control group, the difference was not statistically significant. Although no findings suggesting a correlation between CD and H. pylori was found, further studies should be conducted.
