Gastric mucosa in acute viral hepatitis.


PMID 8335612

Abstract

In acute viral hepatitis, gastric biopsy and augmented histamine test were performed in 63 patients. Gastric histology was abnormal in 12 of 63 (19%) patients; 3 with superficial and 9 with atrophic gastritis. Maximal acid output was less than 10 mEq/h in 35 of 63 (55.5%) patients. Acid load tests were performed in 23 patients measuring H+, K+, Na+ fluxes; the results showed increased loss of acid from lumen to mucosa in 16 of 23 (69.6%) patients, indicating damage to the gastric mucosal barrier.
