A retrospective study for the assessment of the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori was performed on 12 biopsies from patients with Barrett's oesophagus, 20 cases with oesophagitis and 8 without oesophageal lesion. Sections were stained by both Diff-quick and Modified Giemsa stain to detect H. pylori. Thirty three percent of Barrett's oesophagus showed H. pylon in relation to gastric memplasia, 50% of them were associated with acute inflammation, 25% with chronic active inflammation, while 25% showed no signs of inflammation. So, there is direct inflammatory response to H. pylori. Also, the results using the Diff-quick stain are correlated in 100% with those using the Gietnsa stain. Diff-quick, is also simple, rapid, easy and clean recommended for H. pylon in sections.
