Lymphocytic Gastritis


Presentation

  • Three of these four cases with lymphocytic gastritis presented an endoscopic diagnosis of enanthematous pangastritis, and one presented erosive pangastritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • None presented Helicobacter pylori -like organisms at the luminal surface.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This lympho-epithelial phenomenon was present even in areas lacking chronic inflammation in the subjacent lamina propria mucosae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report here an uncommon clinical presentation in a young female presenting with unexplained recurrent weight loss and peripheral oedema. Endoscopic and histological features before and after successful therapy with omeprazole are described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Five surgical cases and one autopsy case combining the gross and microscopic features of Ménétrier's disease and lymphocytic gastritis are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Gastropathy
  • Lymphocytic gastritis has recently been reported to be associated with other forms of hypertrophic gastropathies. We present a case of hypertrophic gastropathy with gastric adenocarcinoma, with both Menetrier's disease and lymphocyte gastritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These cases indicate that lymphocytic gastritis may cause a protein-losing gastropathy and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of Ménétrier's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ménétrier's disease is a hypertrophic gastropathy with enlarged gastric folds. The histological picture is that of foveolar hyperplasia and glandular cysts of the mucosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Ménétrier's disease is a rare form of hypertrophic or hyperplastic gastropathy, characterized by conspicuous thickening of the gastric mucosal folds and foveolar (crypt) hyperplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Examination of the surgical specimen showed a superficial gastric adenocarcinoma developed on an hypertrophic gastropathy with both Ménétrier's disease and lymphocytic gastritis features.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nausea
  • Patients with persistent nausea, vomiting, and anorexia after day 20 underwent upper intestinal endoscopy and mucosal biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Those who do, claim to experience one or several of the following: upper abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, nausea, vomiting, belching, loss of appetite, and weight loss.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Symptoms may include epigastric pain, a bloated feeling and nausea; these most often resolve within a week. After approximately two weeks the reaction evolves into an active chronic gastritis.[cmej.org.za]
  • Six months after her initial presentation she presents for a second opinion as she is on strict GFD but still has substantial bloating, flatus, eructation and occasional nausea. Her cramping improved and she gained 5 lbs since starting GFD.[healio.com]
Vomiting
  • Patients with persistent nausea, vomiting, and anorexia after day 20 underwent upper intestinal endoscopy and mucosal biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The burning is much worse than the vomiting its ur stomach acid burning ur throat. Although chronic indigestion is often treated as an excess of stomach acid low acid in the stomach actually has the same asthma and vaginal and rectal itching.[transnationalterrorism.eu]
  • You should see a doctor if you have any of the following: Blood when you have a bowel movement Severe abdominal pain Heartburn not relieved by antacids Unintended weight loss Ongoing vomiting or diarrhea NIH: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive[icdlist.com]
  • Those who do, claim to experience one or several of the following: upper abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, nausea, vomiting, belching, loss of appetite, and weight loss.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Patients present with nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain and tenderness, usually associated with a neutrophilic leukocytosis. The condition has a high mortality, but patients treated surgically have a better chance of survival.[cmej.org.za]

  • Subsequently, she presented to an emergency room due to abdominal pain, where a CT scan was done.[healio.com]
  • Those who do, claim to experience one or several of the following: upper abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, nausea, vomiting, belching, loss of appetite, and weight loss.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Patients present with nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain and tenderness, usually associated with a neutrophilic leukocytosis. The condition has a high mortality, but patients treated surgically have a better chance of survival.[cmej.org.za]
Suggestibility
  • Both patients had markedly enlarged gastric folds and serum hypoproteinemia, which were clinically suggestive of Ménétrier's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The data suggest that spontaneous remission may occur in lymphocytic gastritis without any gastrointestinal symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: This case suggests a link between gastric adenocarcinoma, Menetrier's disease and lymphocytic gastritis. The presence of H. pylori is postulated as a possible aetiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • At autopsy, there were no gross or histologic findings to suggest lymphoma. The intestinal lymphocytic infiltrate was not monoclonal, and gene rearrangements were not detected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This case together with the six recently published cases suggests that Menetrier's disease and lymphocytic gastritis may be part of the same disease spectrum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The other 37 patients received no treatment, and served as a control group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patients histologically H pylori positive before treatment became H pylori negative. Dyspepsia scores also improved significantly after treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • When followed up 3 months after treatment, all patients remained symptom-free without evidence of recurrent intestinal symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For controls, we selected 14 matched dyspeptic patients participating in another treatment trial whose H pylori infection had successfully been eradicated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim was to assess the significance of H. pylori treatment in lymphocytic gastritis patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis The discovery of H. pylori has improved the prognosis for persons with gastritis and ulcers. Since treatment exists with the potential to eradicate the infection, recurrence is much less common.[encyclopedia.com]

Etiology

  • The etiology and pathogenesis of HLG are unknown, and the possible etiological role of Helicobacter pylori in particular is controversial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • H. pylori appears to be one etiological cause of lymphocytic gastritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Collagenous gastritis is a rare disease, but a wider recognition of its histopathologic features and clinical associations may bring more cases to light and provide additional clues in determining its etiology and pathogenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: LG is not a distinct clinicopathologic entity, but a morphologic pattern of gastric injury that can be secondary to a variety of underlying etiologies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Since the etiology of this disease remains unknown, the apparently endemic nature of lymphocytic gastritis in pigs offer an alternative to investigate the possible cause(s), as well as the mechanism of, this disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology
