Abstract

Recently, a new spiral organism, Helicobacter heilmannii, has been associated with gastritis in man. This review summarizes current knowledge on this microorganism regarding ultrastructure, epidemiology and its association with gastric pathology. Despite the fact that its frequency is far lower than that of Helicobacter pylori, its recognition will provide new insight into gastric disease, especially in view of the recent association of this bacterium with gastric MALT lymphoma and gastric carcinoma.
