Does Helicobacter Pylori Identification in the Mucosa of the Gallbladder Correlate to Cholesterol Gallstone Formation?

Issue: 
Pages: 
428–32
Synopsis: 
Using both standard histology and polymerase chain reaction, H pylori was detectable in a low frequency in the mucosa of the gallbladder and no statistical differences were found between patients with cholesterol gallstones and patients without cholelithiasis. Thus, H pylori does not seem to act as a lithogenic component for cholesterol gallstone formation.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) represents a potential initiator of cholesterol crystallization and it has been proposed that it is related to gallstone formation. In this study, any possible association between the H pylori identification in the mucosa of gallbladder and cholesterol gallstone formation was evaluated.
