Quote:
The most common cause of ulcer disease is Helicobacter pylori followed by the use of NSAIDs.
Eighty to 90% of duodenal ulcers and 70 to 80% of gastric ulcers are associated with H. pylori.
Overall, 10 to 20% of ulcers are idiopathic, and no clear etiology is ever identified.

H.pylori is seen in 80-90% of DU & in 50-70% of GU, but what i meant is in case we found an ulcer in the gastric antrum in pt with longstanding NSAIDS used, shall we consider it as the cause of we should do diagnostic test for H.pylori
