Gastric mucosa showing inflammation, ulceration & high-grade glandular dysplasia?

Chronic gastritis: The objective findings you describe suggest chronic gastritis. There are many possible causes of this, including hyperacidity, infection with h. Pylori, loss of stomach acid production, or even underlying cancer.. It would be a good idea to try to find out what is causing this and doing something to correct it if possible, . ...Read more

Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. no malignancy.

Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. no malignancy.

Can develop Ca: The presence of h pylori with inflammation is a precursor of the potential to develop a somach malignancy or duodenal lymphoma. The bug has a toxin that causes ulceration at specific sites in the stomach. When ulcer is healing it is not with normal cells surrounding the ulcer but from influx of marrow stem cells. The h pylori toxin then attacks the stem cells to transform them to Ca. ...Read more

Esophageal mucosal fragments reveal moderate mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate compromising neutrophils, lymphocytes,  foci of mild dysplasia. Bad?

Maybe: Please check your report and see if there is any mention of barrett's esophagus or intestinal metaplasia. These findings would indicate a premalignant component that requires regular, lifetime followup. The finding of mild dysplasia may require additional medicines for a while, but please followup with your gastroenterologist that did the biopsy. ...Read more

Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?

Precancer: The antrum is that portion of the lower stomach above the pylorus. Having chronic inflammation with extensive intestinal metaplasia is the precursor for developing gastric cancer. Left alone one would find an eventual gastric ulcer and invasive cancer. Partial gastrectomy would probably be indicated at this time. ...Read more

Superficial fragments of oesophagel mucosa lined by stratified squamous epithelium showing mild acanthosis and papillomatosis. Please explain?

Fancy med talk: I just looked up in a medical dictionary: acanthosis means a thickening of a layer of the mucosa of the esophagus. This can be seen with chronic inflammation ( like with reflux disease). The word papillomatosis refers to papilla or projection of tissue sticking out. This can occur if there is chronic injury to the tissue and regeneration. Please ask your GI doctor to take the time to review this. ...Read more
