Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram-negative pathogen that leads to chronic bacterial infection. Approximately, 50% of the worldâ€™s population is affecting even though the precise route of transmission is not known. Up to 90% of people infected with H. pylori never experience symptoms or complications and the majority remains asymptomatic. Treatment failure can occur and physician must deal with case as recommended by guidelines. This report describes the management of a man with gastritis caused by H. pylori that was failed to the three recommended regimens. The patient was initially (first visit) diagnosed as a case of stomach pain (irritation) due to spicy/chilly food.

This paper has been reported to describe an unexpected beneficial response to treatment, report unlabeled or unapproved uses of medication and show a positive personal impact despite, the lack of advanced medical facility.
