Abstract

The major histological features relating stomach cancer to H. pylori in this study were presence of the infection in IM and GA that was observed mainly in Nyarwanda and Nkole. The lack of association between presence of lymphoid follicle and H. pylori infection probably explains the rarity of MALT lymphoma in Africa as these tumours are said to arise from H. pylori associated lymphoid follicles.
