Abstract

Helicobacter bilis, an unusual cause of chronic infections in patients with X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), is notoriously difficult to diagnose and eradicate. Based on the limited number of cases reported worldwide, we highlight the typical features of H. bilis infection in XLA and provide a rational and successful approach to diagnosis and treatment of this challenging infection.
