dc.description.abstractThis work deals with the morbid - anatomical examination of 72 autopsy and 4 gastrectomy stomachs, all formalin- fixed.en
dc.description.abstractThe specimens were fixed according to Magnus' rulings within a very short time of death.en
dc.description.abstractThe stomachs are divided into 5 histological grades according to their health or disease.en
dc.description.abstractIt is shown that the severity of "chronic gastritis" tends to increase with age, although it is pointed out that there are exceptions to this statement.en
dc.description.abstractProof of the existence of physiological ageing of the stomach was not found.en
dc.description.abstractA correlation was attempted between the incidence and severity of chronic gastritis on the one hand and infection, uraemia and other factors on the other. Uraemia was constantly associated with chronic gastritis, often of severe degree. Severe chronic infections were often associated with severe chronic gastritis but sometimes such infections were associated with an almost normal gastric mucosa.en
dc.description.abstractUlceration of the stomach was found in 15% of the adult cases. The average age of the patients was 67 and the ulcers were undiagnosed during life.en
dc.description.abstractErosions were discovered in 30% of all stomachs exclusive of foetal stomachs.en
dc.description.abstractThe pathogenesis of erosions and ulcers is briefly discussed. it is suggested that a vascular origin for erosions and ulcers is commoner than has frequently been supposed. This is supported by the common finding of haemorrhage in the mucosa and of all grades of erosion between 'pure' haemorrhagic erosions and typical miniature ulcers.en
dc.description.abstractReference is made to particular cells of the inflamed mucosa and to 5 stomachs of particular interest.en
