Eradication of Helicobacter pylori for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura

, : Eradication of Helicobacter pylori for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Nihon Shokakibyo Gakkai Zasshi 101(6): 598-608

We investigated the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and the effect of its eradication in a series of 61 chronic ITP patients. H. pylori infection was found in 53 (86.9%) of 61 ITP patients. H. pylori eradication were performed in 44 infected ITP patients and succeeded in 28 (63.6%) patients. 20 (71.4%) of those 28 patients had platelet recovery and 15 (53.6%) patients achieved a remission, and that effect continue (about 2 years). And we investigated relation with ITP and upper gastrointestinal disease. 2 (3.8%) of 53 H. pylori infected cases were gastric ulcer, 1 (1.9%) was duodenal ulcer and 1 (1.9%) was gastric cancer. All cases were chronic atrophic gastritis, and localized atrophic cases achieved a remission after eradication of H. pylori.
