Peptic Ulcer

 

Peptic ulcer is a condition where the lining of the stomach or duodenum, the first part of the small intestine erodes. Normally, the small intestine and the lining in the stomach are protected against irritating acids produced in the stomach. In case this protective lining stops working and the lining breaks down, it may lead to an inflammation or an ulcer. Most ulcers are formed in the first layer of the lining of the stomach. Perforation is a medical condition where a hole goes all the way through the duodenum or stomach. It is caused by infection in the stomach due to the presence of bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori. These bacteria live in the gastrointestinal tract of people already having peptic ulcer
