The erythematous mucosa of the stomach is a red, inflamed stomach lining. Endoscopic assessment typically reveals this illness in patients with a diagnosis of gastritis and an irritated stomach lining. During endoscopy, biopsies may or may not be collected to assess and diagnose the origin of the erythema.
There are numerous causes of stomach gastritis, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, bile reflux, alcohol, and bacterial infections like Helicobacter pylori. Some disorders, including sarcoidosis and even allergies, can cause erythematous changes in the stomach. Additionally, radiation therapies may induce erythema of the stomach lining.
A person may or may not exhibit signs of gastritis. Some symptoms, such as mild belly discomfort after eating or heartburn, may be mild, while others may be severe. Loss of weight, vomiting, and hematemesis are all potential symptoms of gastritis.
Acute gastritis is often a brief inflammatory condition. Chronic gastritis may cause chronic alterations in the gastric mucosa, resulting in muscular atrophy and even cellular abnormalities that lead to stomach cancer.
It is believed that stomach cancer develops in stages, starting with an H. pylori infection and advancing through chronic gastritis, atrophy, metaplasia, and dysplasia, or the formation of cancer cells.
