Dr. Priya Dhora [2] | Dr. Abhimanyu Patial [2] | Era Sankhyayan [2]


Abstract: Introduction: Upper gastrointestinal tract disorders are one of the most commonly encountered problems in clinical practice and are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. A wide spectrum of disorders can affect gastrium, with inflammatory and neoplastic lesions being the most common. Endoscopy, in combination with biopsy plays an important role in timely diagnosis and early management. Objectives: To study the spectrum of gastric neoplastic lesions and its correlation with socio - demographic details. Materials and Methods: This was an observational study conducted at department of pathology, at Dr. RPGMC Tanda for duration of one year. A total of 263 gastric endoscopic biopsies were received and were routine processed and histopathological assessment was done. Thereafter, 20 biopsies diagnosed as neoplastic lesions were included in the present study. Results: Age of the patients varied from 41 - 90 years with male: female ratio of 4.7: 1. Out of 20 gastric endoscopic biopsies, 19 cases (95%) were of adenocarcinoma and 1 case (5%) was of signet ring cell carcinoma. Conclusion: Endoscopy guided biopsy is simple, safe, cost effective, day care procedure with less complication rates and gives direct visualization of pathological site. Most of the patients with gastric malignancy have vague symptoms or no symptoms in early stage and are often diagnosed only in advanced stage. Hence, endoscopy in combination with biopsy acts as a useful diagnostic tool for gastric lesions and has revolutionized the management of patients.
