          Abstract

          Common endoscopic findings in stomachs with Helicobacter pylori infections include antral nodularity, thickened gastric folds, and visible submucosal vessels. These findings are suggestive but not diagnostic of H. pylori infection. Magnifying endoscopy can reveal more precisely the abnormal mucosal patterns in an H. pylori-infected stomach; however, it requires more training, expertise, and time. We aimed to establish a new classification for predicting H. pylori-infected stomachs by non-magnifying standard endoscopy alone.
