    Abstrakt

    Ménétrier's disease is a rare and poorly outlined disease, diagnosed in patients with giant gastric folds, dyspeptic symptoms and hypoalbuminaemia due to gastrointestinal protein loss. The etiology is unknown, but Ménétrier's disease is often associated with Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection. Case reports and studies concerning the effect of eradication therapy in patients with Ménétrier's disease were reviewed. It was found that complete normalisation of the gastric mucosa and gastointestinal protein loss following eradication therapy has been reported in several cases. In conclusion, we recommend patients with Ménétrier's disease to be tested for Hp, and treated with eradication therapy in case of infection.
