Background/Aims : There are some reports which show higher Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) seroprevalence in patients with colonic adenoma and carcinomas, than in control subjects. The H. pylori infection rate and simultaneous gastroduodenal lesions were evaluated to document the relationship between colonic lesions and H. pylori infection.
: Patients with colonic polyps or cancers who were confirmed by colonoscopic polypectomy or biopsy were studied. H. pylori infections were evaluated serologically and/or with CLO testing. Gastroduodenoscopy was performed. Results : Twenty six subjects were involved. The numbers of the patients with hyperplastic polyps, tubular adenomas and carcinomas were 7, 6 and 13, respectively. The H. pylori infection rate was 65.4%. Simultaneous gastroduodenal lesions were observed in 11 patients (42.3%) and H. pylori infections were found in 9 (81.8%). Among the 17 subjects with H. pylori infections, 9 subjects (52.9%) had simultaneous gastroduodenal lesions. In contrast, 2 subjects (22.2%) had upper gastrointestinal lesions among 9 subjects without H. pylori infections.
: Patients with colorectal neoplasia can experience, simultaneous gastroduodenal lesions, especially in the cases involving H. pylori infection. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;20:91 96)
