Introduction: Vomiting is one of the most common problems during pregnancy periods which happens in 50% of the pregnant women.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is a rare status that lout of 500 pregnant women suffer from it, Although the reason of HG is unknown, but several studies indicate a relationship between HG and helicobacter pylori. So the aim of this study was to assess the relation between H.pylori infection and hyperemesis gravidarum and to compare it with healthy ones.
Materials and Methods: ln this case control study 100 pregnant women with HG and 100 pregnant controls, at the same gestational weeks, referred to the city clinics were studied.
Then H.pylori serum immunoglobulin IgG concentration was determined in the case and control- groups by ELIZA method and serologic tests and analyzed using SPSS software.
Findings: Results showed that the prevalence of H.pylori infection was significantly higher in patients with HG (79.8%) than in controls (46.8%) with a P<0.00 1 .
There were no significant differences in maternal age, gestational age and social economic status between case and control groups.
Conclusion: Results of this study indicate that H. pylori can play an important role for etiology of hyperemesis gravidarum.
