Abstract

This is a cross-sectional study on 140 gastric neoplasm subjects diagnosed by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The commonest site of cancer was the antrum of stomach (52.86%), followed by the antrum and body (32.86%) and only body region (12.14%). Histology revealed adenocarcinoma in all patients. The associations of Helicobacter pylori with gastric cancer were studied by rapid urease test, serology and histology by Giemsa stain. The positivity of H. pylori determined by serology in 70 patients (50%) was significantly higher than those determined by histology 22 patients (15.71%). No significant association between H. pylori infection and gastric cancer was observed.
