Corrosive gastritis

American Journal of Surgery
M I RaghebM A Khalil


Cases of corrosive gastritis are relatively few in the literature. Fifteen patients with combined corrosive esophagogastritis are reported on herein. In the acute stage (with severe degree of esophagogastritis) feeding jejunostomy was recommended, whereas in the chronic stage (with gastric obstruction) posterior gastrojejunostomy was performed for all patients. Patients were classified into three grades depending on the extent of associated esophagitis. We conclude that corrosive gastritis is a possible associated complication of corrosive intake (particularly for suicide) and requires a latent period of time to be clinically evident.
