Introduction: Dyspepsia is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders and an indication for upper gastrointestinal endo-scopy (UGIE). The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders in patients with dyspepsia who referred to gastrointestinal clinics in Ilam during the years 2010-2011.
Materials & Methods: In this cross-sect-ional study, all documents of patients with the history of dyspepsia and epigastric pain were evaluated. Data were analyzed by SPSS, t-test, logistic regression and Chi-square tests.
 Findings: A total of 1464 patients und-erwent UGI endoscopy during a one-year study (age range 1-94). 50.1% of patients were male, and gastrointestinal disorders such as hiatal hernia, reflux esophagitis, duodenal ulcer and gastric ulcer were 91.5%, 44.2%, 26.1%, 30.2%, respectively. The final diagnosis was celiac in 17patients (1%), and was gastric cancer in 6 patients (0.4%).There was a significant association between reflux esophagitis and hiatal hernia (OR=4.59).
 Discussion & Conclusion: The Prevalence of dyspepsia is increasing in Ilam this could be attributed to changes in life style and dietary habits such as eating fast foods, more consumption of fat, obesity, and smoking. Finally, it is suggested that these findings can be helpful, and may offer a solution to decrease the prevalence of dyspepsia and its complications in Ilam.
Keywords: Dyspepsia, hiatal hernia, reflux esophagitis, Ilam
