Abstract

Introduction: Glomerulonephritis is still the primary cause among the diseases causing end stage renal disease. Helicobacter pylori (HP), also having a local proinflammatory effect on gastric mucosa, can trigger a local and systemic inflammatory response, and consequently have a role in the development of extragastrointestinal defects.
