Abstract

Two outpatient medical offices evaluated 204 patients with chronic urticaria during 2012. This article presents a retrospective study showing that 10% of patients with chronic urticaria may be infected with H. pylori. Furthermore, eradication of infection can be followed by remission of urticaria, reduced morbidity from gastric ulcers, and cancer.
