Biopsy negative for H pylori 4 ulcers found

Post by Sonik123 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:11 am



I recently got an endoscopy done after suffering from abdominal pain for over 3 months. Biopsy confirmed I was negative for H pylori and got diagnosed with Erosive/follicular gastritis.

I am not taking NSAIDs, is it possible the biopsy missed H pylori infected tissue ? Can't figure out what caused my ulcers.

Endoscopy is usually very accurate in detecting H. pylori. The CLOtest can detect H. pylori within 10 minutes; Histology will take a few days. Both methods have very high sensitivity and specificity.

Do you know which method was used?

It was a histology. It took 4 days to get the results back.

No test is 100% accurate. But I believe your specialist is good and know what he is doing.

Non HP and Non NSAIDs ulcer is rare. I wonder what did your specialist comment. What else is written in your histology report?
