Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a Gram-negative, helically shaped flagellated bacterium. Major diseases associated with H. pylori infection include peptic ulcer, gastric adenocarcinoma, and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. The incidence of H. pylori in the anatomotopographic regions of the stomach, such as antrum, corpus, fundus, and incisura angularis, has been investigated. Do the rates of H. pylori in the settlements change over time according to the age ranges of the hosts? Does this change affect the diseases caused by or related to H. pylori? It is estimated that the outcomes, which have been obtained, may provide a new perspective in terms of understanding the etiopathogenesis of H. pylori-induced diseases. A comprehensive literature search of PubMed/MEDLINE databases had been conducted using a combination of terms, “Helicobacter pylori,” “Sydney System,” “stomach,” “pyloric antrum,” “gastric corpus,” “stomach cancer,” and “Helicobacter pylori and age.” There are very few articles examining the relationship between the topographic locations of H. pylori and host age range in the English language literature. Therefore, it is also purposed to emphasize the outcomes of our current research about the mentioned topic. In our opinion, similar studies should reveal the settlement and age range in the different geographic locations and societies as in our study. We believe that these findings will contribute to the efforts for understanding overtly of H. pylori-induced disease of the stomach.
