Helicobacter pylori is one of the most common human pathogens worldwide with serious clinical out-comes. Equine Gastric ulceration (EGUS) is the most common gastric disease that affects between 53 to 90% of adult horses, although several risk factors for the development of gastric ulcers have been widely studied, investigation of microbiological factors has been limited, therefore in our study, fifty faecal samples were collected from fifty diseased horses and application of PCR assay for detection of Helicobacter specific gene 16S rRNA, twelve samples were positive among the examined samples resulting in (24%) positivity, young foals show higher prevalence than adult horses. The occurrence of Helicobacter in horse may act as a potential zoonotic risk hazard thus, further studies are needed to investigate the zoonotic pathway to the human contacts.
