Abstract

ABSTRACT:Twenty-five (14 males and 11 female) gastritis cases diagnosed on endoscopic examinationrevealed some form of inflammatory lesion of gastric mucosa. All the cases were biopsied forhistological confirmation of diagnosis. Nineteen of 25 had histological evidence of the disease while6 showed no histological changes. Thus in about 76% cases there was positive correlation betweenendoscopic and histopathological diagnosis.
