Endoscopic study on areae gastricae of the fundic mucosa



Endoscopic study on areae gastricae of the fundic mucosa



Gastroenterological Endoscopy 26(2): 194-200



The areae gastricae of the fundic mucosa were examined in 165 cases with and without gastroduodenal diseases by dye spraying endoscopy. The areae gastricae of the fundic mucosa were classified into 4 types: type F0 is small and has fine areas arranged close to each other; the area of type F1 is the largest in size, round and tall; F2 is large in size but not so tall and F3 is small and has flat areas arranged loosely near each other. Glandular atrophy, foveolar hyperplasia, intestinal metaplasia, cellular infiltration and lymph follicle of biopsied specimen of each area type were studied. None or mild changes were seen in F0, but more severe changes were observed as one went from F1, F2 to F3. Considering the patterns of areae gastricae and the histological findings, it can be concluded that: the area of F0 is formed by mechanical accomodation to stomach movements such as peristalsis, then gradually changing to F1, F2 and F3 by inflammation, erosions and atrophic changes of the fundic mucosa, etc.
