Background and aims: the increasing prevalence of strains resistant to antimicrobial agents is a critical issue for the management of Helicobacter pylori infection. This study aimed to evaluate, in Italian naive patients, H. pylori antibiotic resistance trends and their potential predictive factors during the last decade. Methods: consecutive Italian naive H. pylori positive patients, referred from General Practitioners to our Unit from January 2009 to January 2019 to perform an upper gastrointe...

Abstract Background/aim Despite some official guidelines are available, a substantial rate of inappropriateness for upper gastrointestinal (UGI) endoscopies has been reported. This study aimed to estimate the inappropriate rate of UGI in different countries, also including the diagnostic yield. Methods A systematic review of studies on UGI endoscopy appropriateness was performed by adopting official guidelines as reference standard. Diagnostic yield of relevant endoscopic findings and cancers wa...

Summary Cameron lesions are erosive-ulcerative alterations of gastric mucosa occurring in patients with large hiatal hernia, potentially causing gastrointestinal bleeding and iron deficiency anaemia. Diagnosis may be challenging, and not infrequently erosions are overlooked at endoscopy, so that repeated and unnecessary diagnostic procedures are performed, particularly in those patients with chronic anaemia. We described two peculiar cases of patients with iron deficiency anaemia in whom Cameron...

Whipple’s disease (WD) is known as an infrequent, systemic, chronic infection caused by the actinomycete Tropherima whipplei (T. whipplei). The disease is frequently characterized by a long prodromal and protean extra-intestinal phase, which often causes misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatments. Herein, we describe the case a 62-year-old man with a histological diagnosis of WD established when oral steroid treatment was started due to rheumatic manifestations, triggering intestinal symptoms. Sy...

AbstractPurpose: Bacterial resistance toward the most used antibiotics is increasing in Helicobacter pylori strains worldwide. Emergence of multidrug resistance significantly affects the efficacy of standard therapy regimens. Therefore, monitoring for primary antimicrobial resistance is essential for H. pylori management in clinical practice.Methodology: H. pylori isolates obtained from patients consecutively observed in a single center were tested for primary resistance by using E-test method. ...
