Core Tip Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is not uncommon in Africa. There is considerable heterogeneity in its prevalence with no clear geographical patterns. There are further differences in PUD within-country despite endemic Helicobater pylori infection. Most African tertiary-centre studies have higher prevalence of PUD when compared with western countries. One possible reason for its sustained prevalence is the significant use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in local preparations. The prevalence of atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia were similar or modestly higher over western countries but lower than those seen in Asia. Contrastingly, a comparatively low prevalence for gastric cancer is usually observed in African centres, although these rates might be underestimated.
