Helicobacter pylori is a spiral pathogenic bacterium that colonizes the stomach of more than 50% of the world population. Although there are numerous articles reported on H. pylori not yet been clarified the full route of transmission of the bacteria to the host, which can be fecal-oral, oral-oral and today has also emerged as a possible vehicle of transmission hydric via. Thanks to these theories it has emerged a new knowledge about H. pylori. It has been described its non-culturable viable stage (coccoid form of H. pylori), decreasing bacterial metabolism and changing its morphology as a response mechanism to environmental stress. Keywords: Helicobacter pylori, Cocoid form, Resistance, Environmental, Permanence, Stress.
