SUMMARY Background: Most countries have registrated decline in distal (antrum and corpus) gastric cancer incidence and mortality. On the other hand, adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia has been increasing with the unknown risk factor being responsible. This observation may or may not be in the relation to the Helicobacter pylori infection. Aims: To study the time trends of Helicobacter pylori related diseases in the past decade Material and methods: This study was based on endoscopy reports of the hospitalized patients collected in the Department of the diagnostic endoscopy; Clinic of gastroenterology and hepatology- Belgrade between 1987 and 1997. Results: From 1987 to 1997, hospitalisation rates for gastric ulcer as well as distal gastric cancer fell, while the hospitalization rate for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and duodenal ulcer didn’t change. At the same time hospitalisation rate for gastric cardia cancer rose. When this is compared to the time trend of the duodenal ulcer significant difference between those two trends was observed (P (EN)
