Background & Objective: Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium responsible for one of the most prevalent infections found in humans worldwide. Considering the importance of this infection and its different prevalence in different regions of Iran, this study was conducted to determine the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori in Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari as a high-risk province.

 

Materials & Methods : This cross-sectional descriptive study was performed on 200 patients with dyspeptic symptoms referred to Hajar Hospital, Shahrekord. First, we applied the RUT and PCR assays to identify Helicobacter pylori-positive samples, and then performed SPSS software and statistical analyses to find the relationship between Helicobacter pylori infection and different kinds of diseases.

 

Results: Out of all samples, 82% were infected with Helicobacter pylori. According to the data, there was a significant relationship between sex, level of education, and pain and Helicobacter pylori infection, while there was no relationship between the bacterium and age, family size, occupation, alcohol consumption, and smoking.

 

Conclusion: Given the increased prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and its complications, health education and tight control of re-infection are recommended in patients.
