Gastritis has a broad histopathologic and topographical spectrum and leads to different patterns of disease. The introduction of the Sydney system made it possible to grade histological parameters, identify topographic distribution and provide etiological information which would help to generate reproducible and clincally useful diagnoses. The aim of this study was to assess the histopathologic features associated with chronic gastritis and also determine the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori in non-ulcer dyspepsia, duodenal ulcer and gastric ulcer. In this study, gastric antral biopsy specimens from 200 patients were examined for the prevalence of H pylori and were classified and graded histologically. The overall colonization rate of H pylori was 44%. The colonization rates were 85%, 67% and 41% in patients with duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer and non-ulcer dyspepsia respectively. There was not much difference between the degree of atrophy and intestinal metaplasia in H pylori positive and negative cases. Adequate sampling is a must for accurate diagnosis of H pylori colonization.
