Dr. STEPHEN GROBLER answered
Follow up biopsies: Recommend you discuss the findings with your endoscopist - it may be prudent to follow up these findings with additional biopsies from other areas of the stomach to "map" the extent, characteristics and to exclude Helicobacter pylori. The chronic gastritis that was noted is more commonly associated with Helicobacter, ulcerogenic drugs and / or bile reflux, rather than an autoimmune condition.
