[Biopsies for Helicobacter pylori]

Previous | List | Next

Histological examination of the Giemsa-stained tissue is one of the most common diagnostic methods for Helicobacter infection. However, there is no standard guideline for the location and the number of biopsies.

Recommendation: For the histological diagnosis of H. pylori infection, take two biopsies each from the greater curvature of the body and the greater curvature of the antrum.
