Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection can cause extra gastric manifestations as an effect of persistent gastric infection, whose immune response may induce both local and remote lesions .
Our study aimed to identify the prevalence of extra digestive (gastric) H. pylori skin manifestations (EdHpSm) of diabetes mellitus patients so as to clarify the possible association between extra gastric cutaneous manifestations of diabetes mellitus and H. pylori infection in Sudanese populations, in dermatology department in Jabir Abu Eliz Diabetic Center. We used Enzyme immune assay to detect H. pylori antigens in patient’s stools. In Sudan the only study done was about skin manifestations of H. pylori without specifity to diabetics .But I found another study say that, there is a higher reinfection rate in diabetic patients than in normal peoples, and when occur is associated with poor glycemic control .
