Q: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHAT IS ANTRAL ERYTHEMA? THANK YOU!
Swelling/inflammation in third part of stomach.
Thanks for asking query on this forum,
Answer is stomach is divided into four parts clinically.The third part is called antral.Erythema means inflammation.Very likely you are suffering from chronic gastritis in which all the three layers of muscles present in antral part of gut are inflammed.This is the of antral erythema.
Biopsy sample should have been taken from that are to rule out H.pylori bacteria as a cause of the erythema.
This is totally not related to loose motions and Irritable bowel syndome.
