Abstract

Introduction:

spp. colonizing the human stomach other than have been rarely described in children.

Case Presentation:

We identified an uncultured by histology and PCR in biopsies from a symptomatic child. Surprisingly, the PCR assay demonstrated the presence of the gene in this uncultured and its sequence related highly to virulence factor. The analysis of the 16S ribosomal sequence showed higher identity with uncultured spp. and the strain, respectively.

Conclusion:

This is the first report that shows the presence of in an uncultured extracted from human gastric mucosa.
