Histology of gastric biopsy specimens from 213 patients was studied. Microscopic observation of hematoxylin & eosin stained sections was the main method for identification of Helicobacter pylori. Results of 200 cases were compared with biochemical test, Gram's stain and culture of concurrent specimens. Relations between presence of H. pylori and gastric pathology were analyzed. Histologic presence of H. pylori is significantly correlated with presence and activity of gastritis and intestinal metaplasia.
