Abstract

Celiac disease percentage is continuously increasing in recent years. Helicobacter pylori infection is found in more than 50% of the population. Recent studies have attempted to discover a link between celiac disease and H. pylori infection. We analyzed the main immunopathological aspects of celiac disease associated with H. pylori infection. If celiac disease is associated with H. pylori infection, clinical evidence can occur: gastric lymphocytosis, duodenal lymphocytosis.
