Abstract

Gastritis, esophagitis, and peptic ulcer disease (PUD) present commonly with epigastric pain or dyspepsia. Dyspepsia refers to upper abdominal pain or discomfort and may be associated with fullness, belching, bloating, heartburn, food intolerance, nausea, or vomiting. Dyspepsia is a common problem. Despite discoveries about the cause and treatment of peptic ulcer disease, dyspepsia remains a challenging problem to evaluate and treat.
