Morphological Diagnosis of Erosive Esophagitis in Patients with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Yu.A. Haidar, L.M. Mosiychuk, N.Yu. Oshmianska 

Abstract


The esophageal biopsies of 79 patients with clinical evidence of gastroesophageal reflux disease were examined. Using computer morphometry the intercellular spaces of the squamous epithelium were measured and analyzed along with the features of inflammatory cells migration in cases of non-erosive, erosive and eosinophilic esophagitis, depending on the tonus of the Oddi sphincter and gall bladder.


Keywords


gastroesophageal reflux disease; erosive esophagitis; computer morphometry.
