Enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells are the dominant endocrine cell type in the oxyntic mucosa. Normally regarded as histamine-producing cells, they are exquisitely sensitive to the trophic action of gastrin and undergo a hyperplastic increase in a variety of hypergastrinemic conditions. A hyperplasia-neoplasia sequence of ECL-cell proliferations has been recently proposed, following the realization that increasingly severe degrees of ECL-cell hyperplasias over a period of several years can… CONTINUE READING
