What does mild erythema of the gastir mucosa in the antrum and body of stomach mean in an egd?

Likely normal

Abdomen
Most patients will have some mild erythema in the stomach outlet. Redness of the mucosa represents gastritis, or inflammation of the lining of the stomach that can be reactive to smoke, alcohol, or medications and food. See your doctor for followup and discussion.

Just got an EGD done and it says normal esophagus & duodenum but diffuse erythema and friability of the mucosa in the antrum. What does it mean?

It means Gastritis

Upset_stomach
The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." The term "gastritis" thus means an "inflammed stomach" which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic & hypersecretory problems. Try acid blockers & diet modification, recommended by your doctor.

I got a EGD today and waiting on the biopsy Results. What does Congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis? & normal mucosa?

Patchy inflammation

Burning_feeling_in_stomach
Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness. Based on the your description of the endoscopic appearance of your stomach lining it sounds like you have a patchy mild inflammation there. Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H.pylori, NSAID, etc.)

What does congestion & erythema of the mucosa in the antrum compatible w/ gastritis mean on EGD report? I assume it simply means "you have gastritis"

True

Mucosa
Pathologists love to embellish sometimes, but your report is consistent with gastritis, which can have numerous etiologies (infectious, reactive, etc.). See your endoscopic physician to explain your procedure's findings with you.

What exactly is erythematous mucosa?

Inflammation

Mucosa
Mucous membranes cover most of the internal organs and spaces of the body. If the mucosa is is erythmatous, it means it is red and this usually means inflammed or irritated. This can be due to infections, trauma, auto-immune disorders and toxic agents that come into contact. In your case, it would depend on where, why and when. Discuss with your doctor if needed.
