Abstract

Background : The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori is higher in developing countries, with most infections occurring in childhood. Because the prevalence in eastern Turkey has not been previously reported, we carried out an investigation to detect the prevalence of H. pylori infection in a large city center in this region.
