If I have to look for H.pylori in colon biopsies too, I'll quit this job. In
the days before these microorganisms invaded earth (and stomachs too),
somebody could see biopsies with dysplasia,  cancer, lymphomas and so on,
nowadays the only thing you're looking for are HLO before and after therapy.

In my opinion HLO *does* give stress induced ulcers in pathologists too!
