BACKGROUND It has long been recognised that specific patterns of gastritis are linked with different gastroduodenal diseases and that serum pepsinogens vary with the histological state of the gastric mucosa. With the discovery of the role of Helicobacter pylori in chronic gastritis and the availability of noninvasive tests for H. pylori infection, individuals with H. pylori gastritis can now be identified without endoscopic biopsy. However, without a knowledge of the pattern and severity of… CONTINUE READING
