Just want to share my latest biopsy results. Both are done in 2 different labs & pathologists. Do you think the biopsy would get wrong diagnosis, because my current gastroenterology suggest me to take the previous biopsy for their pathology to re-check (due to the contrast in "atrophy" which he believe it was Atrophic Gastritis)? But, after 5 months passed, no features of atrophy was shown in biopsy.
Do you all think that was Atrophic Gastritis based on my first biopsy report? What about "neutrophils and eosinophils"?
My current biopsy results doesn't show as much as information as my first one, such as no say the color of tissue biopsy, whether it is mild / moderate / severe gastritis. Do you think it is MILD since it said "slight excess numbers of plasma cells & lymphocytes"? I know lymphocytes if white blood cells, but what is plasma cells?
Anyway, I'm glad it said no atrophy and superficial gastritis only! But just worried it might not be accurate. Sigh~
Any information would be appreciated! Thanks ~
My gastric biopsy report (as of 19th July 2011) shows as follow:
4 pieces of tissue together measuring 0.8cm. All embedded in 1 block.
The pieces of gastric mucosa are of usual thickness and have body-type glands. Slight excess numbers of plasma cells & lymphocytes are seen in the lamina propria. There is no other abnormal cellular infiltration. No epithelial dysplasia is seen. Bacterial particles of H. Phylori are not observed.
Chronic superficial gastritis in body mucosa of stomach. No features of atrophy.
My gastric biopsy report (as of 10th Feb 2011) shows as follow:
Received in formalin are 3 fragments of greyish white mucosal biopsy measuring an aggregate diameter of 6mm. Entire specimen submitted in 1 block.
Section show fragments of inflamed congested gastric mucosa with moderate atrophy. Surface flattening noted. Some of the glands show inflammatory reparative change. Stroma show mild diffuse increased infiltrates of lymphocytes, few plasma cells, occasional neutrophils and eosinophils. No evidence of Helicobacter organism seen morphologically, metaplasia, dysplasia or malignancy.
Mild diffuse chronic active gastritis with moderate atrophy.
No Helicobacter organism.
No evidence of metaplasia, dysplasia or malignancy.
