My name is Sheila Crowe. I'm a professor of medicine at the University of California in San Diego. I'm going to be discussing acid peptic diseases of the stomach and duodenum, including H. pylori infection and NSAIDs.

To start, I would like to talk about the clinical presentations of H. pylori infection. The most common presentation is an asymptomatic infection in which the patient has no idea they're infected. Another presentation is indigestion, or what we call this dyspepsia. Additionally, H. pylori can lead to gastric ulcer and also duodenal ulcer. Perhaps one of the more serious long term presentations of H. pylori infection is the development of gastric adenocarcinoma, and a relatively rare presentation is a special kind of lymphoma known as the MALT lymphoma, because it involves the Mucosal Associated Lymphoid Tissue.
