Erosive esophagitis After H pylori eradiaction
42 yo male.
20/02/2012: Dx : gastritis, h-Pylori +
Endoscopy: Chronic active gastritis with erythema
28/03/2012: finiched 7 days HP-PAc tritherapy.
25/05/2012: Breath test negative ....but
endoscopy the same day: Erosive esophagitis grade A , ; (
I read a lot of research talking about the relationship between the eradiaction of H-Pylori and the onset of reflux esophagitis.
Do someone know about the prognosis of this condition in long term period .
I'm feling like trading one bad condition with another.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  Were you rechecked for H Pylori during the endoscopy in additon to the breath test?  Esophagitis can definitely be improved or "cured".

Hi and thx for your fast answer.

Yes the GE took biopsies just to be sure that h-pylori is gone.
I'm really confused right now because i've never had any Gerd or any kind of heartburn before HP eradication.

It is possible that the H pylori "set-off" your stomach causing the GERD.  This might get better over time.
