CORRELATION OF ENDOSCOPIC FINDING WITH HISTOLOGICAL, DIAGNOSIS IN GASTRITIS

Alamzeb Manan, Sajjad Ahmed

Abstract


ABSTRACT:
Twenty-five (14 males and 11 female) gastritis cases diagnosed on endoscopic examination
revealed some form of inflammatory lesion of gastric mucosa. All the cases were biopsied for
histological confirmation of diagnosis. Nineteen of 25 had histological evidence of the disease while
6 showed no histological changes. Thus in about 76% cases there was positive correlation between
endoscopic and histopathological diagnosis.
