Performed usually to rule out H. pylori or other types of inflammatory processes (gastritis), however sometimes they are taking samples of suspicious lesions (adenocarcinoma, lymphoma…)

Review and SignoutEdit

If you find gastritis, you should look for bugs, and get a thiazine to look for H. pylori. If the biopsy is from antrum and the clinical question on the requisition is to rule out H. Pylori, some faculty like to pre-order this stain. (Some labs use H. pylori immunostain instead of thiazine.)

1. Stomach, (body, antrum), biopsy:

-Gastric (oxyntic, antral)-type mucosa without significant inflammation or dysplasia.
-Chronic gastritis, (in-, minimally, mildly, moderately, severely) active, gastric (oxyntic, antral)-type mucosa, see note.

Comment: A thiazine stain was performed and is negative/positive for H. pylori organisms OR Thiazine stain for H. pylori will be performed and the result will be reported in an addendum.
