Mª EULALIA VALENCIA, ROCÍO MONTEJANO, VICTORIA MORENO, LUZ MARTÍN CARBONERO, JOSÉ IGNACIO BERNARDINO, LUCÍA SERRANO
Introduction. Gastrointestinal disorders are frequent in HIV+. Helicobacter pylori may be an underdiagnosed cause.
Material and methods. Patients with HIV and H. pylori were described since January 1998 up to December 2017.
Results. A total de 132 patients were included. The most frequent symptom was dyspepsia. 88.5% had chronic atrophic gastritis. Eradication was achieved in 102 (77.3%). Healing was more frequent with quadruple regimen (p=0.004) and in the youngest (p=0.041).
Conclusion. H. pylori infection could be responsible for nonspecific digestive manifestations in HIV + patients.
