Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is one of the most commonly encountered gastroenterologic diseases in Korea. The trend in diagnosis and treatment of PUD in Korea has changed in the past decade with the introduction of endoscopy and potent acid suppressants such as proton pump inhibitors. The discovery of Helicobacter pylori has opened a new era for the understanding of pathogenesis and management of PUD. In this review, we tried to look back at the history of PUD in Korea and the changes of epidemiologic features and treatment of PUD in Korea.
Key Words: Peptic ulcer; Endoscopy; Helicobacter pylori
