Endoscopy of Acute Gastritis (3 of 6)

1 rating(s) (2 ø)

The causes, natural history, and therapeutic implications of gastropathy differ from gastritis:

Most classification systems distinguish acute, short-term from chronic, long-term disease. The terms acute and chronic are also used to describe the type of inflammatory cell infiltrate. Acute inflammation is usually associated with neutrophilic infiltration, while chronic inflammation is usually characterized by mononuclear cells, chiefly lymphocytes, plasma cells and macrophages. A practical clinicopathologic framework for the classification of gastritis and gastropathy based upon these factors can be proposed.
