Answer

Acute H pylori infection usually is not detected clinically, but persistence of the organism causes H pylori chronic gastritis, which is usually asymptomatic but may manifest as epigastric pain, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, early satiety or weight loss. Symptoms may occur with the development of complications of chronic H pylori gastritis, which include peptic ulcers, gastric adenocarcinoma, and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma.
