Microbial colonization of the oropharynx, esophagus and stomach in patients with gastric diseases.

Abstract

The microbial colonization of the oropharynx, the esophagus and the stomach were studied in 60 patients. Patients with gastritis, carcinoma and a history of gastric resection harboured more microorganisms in their stomachs than patients with gastric or duodenal ulcers. Patients with gastric carcinoma were colonized with the highest numbers of different microorganisms.
