SUMMARY An observation study, which analyzed cases and controls, was realized with 1850 adults subjected to upper digestive endoscopy, who were sent to the Endocentro Ltda. Medical center in Bogota, Colombia, due to diverse symp- toms, and who had not received previous treatment with antibiotics, antibacterial medication or medication that al- tered gastric secretion. Chronic follicular gastritis was found in 8.4% (102 patients), 73 women and 29 men, with an average age of 33.5 years. Inflammation activity was detected in 99% and H. pylori in 98% of the patients. The controlled group was made up of 1100 patients with other kinds of chronic gastritis different from follicular gas- tritis. With these 1100 patients, 698 women and 412 men, with an average age of 48.3 years, inflammatory activity was found in 72.1% and H. pylori in 63.3%. In the feminine gender, a minimum risk increase was determined, without presenting changes in chronic follicular gastritis of statisti- cal significance OR = 1.48 (95% IC 0.93-2.41). In the young patients who were less than 35 years old and in those infec- ted by H. pylori, a higher risk for follicular gastritis changes was observed OR = 7.57 (95% IC 4.82-11,97) and OR =28.94 (95% IC 7.72-243.23) respectively. A greater inflammatory activity was observed in patients with chronic follicular gas- tritis, OR = 38.96 (95% IC 6.76-1558.64).
