Answer

Chronic H pylori-associated gastritis affects both sexes with approximately the same frequency, though some studies have noted a slight male predominance. [82] The female-to-male ratio for autoimmune gastritis has been reported to be 3:1. Lymphocytic gastritis affects men and women at similar rates. [75]
