Lymphocytic gastritis is a new histopathological entity characterised by a dense lymphocytic infiltration of surface and pit gastric epithelium. Previous retrospective work has suggested that lymphocytic gastritis is related to an endoscopic form of gastropathy comprising enlarged folds, nodules and erosions, commonly denoted as varioliform gastritis.

Lymphocytic gastritis is a histopathological entity characterised by the accumulation of small lymphocytes in the surface and foveolar epithelium. In order to investigate the correlation between endoscopy and histology in this condition, 192 observations selected on the basis of a presumed diagnosis of erosive or varioliform gastritis were reviewed.

A historical series of varioliform gastritis published in 1978 by Lambert et al. (Digestion 1978; 17: 159-167) was revisited by two pathologists. The histological preparations from 35 patients were reread and interpreted in the light of endoscopic data found in the files. The results demonstrate a strict correlation between clinical diffuse varioliform(More)
La validité des biopsies endoscopiques dans le diagnostic de malabsorption a été évaluée sur base: - d’une référence au classement des structures villositaires en endoscopie (classe I: villosités normales; classe II: subatrophie; classe III: atrophie totale); - d’une évaluation de la conformité des biopsies à l’analyse histologique, profondeur des biopsies,(More)
L’endoscopie diagnostique du tractus digestif supérieur, dont la diffusion est considérable, jouit d’une réputation d’inocuité. Les complications mécaniques — perforations œsophagiennes et gastriques — sont devenues exceptionnelles depuis l’usage d’instruments de fin calibre. En revanche, les complications rates — publiées isolément — doivent retenir(More)
Les auteurs ont soumis à une fibroduodénoscopie avec coloration vitale au bleu de méthylène, 78 patients ulcéreux duodénaux chroniques, symptomatiques et porteurs de radiographies récentes non concluantes. L’endoscopie standard a révélé un ulcère méconnu dans 9% des cas; dans 56,2% des bulbes en apparence cicatriciels lors de l’endoscopie standard, un(More)
In the coming years, European death rates because of cancer will further decline, but the overall number of cases will increase, mostly as a consequence of the ageing of the population. The target for cancer prevention in Europe will remain a healthy diet and control of obesity in addition to a decrease in smoking. A healthy diet model in European countries(More)
