EGD with biopsies; colonoscopy with biopsies
A. Duodenum, NOS
B. Gastric antrum
C. gastro-esophageal junction
D. colon - random colon
A. Biopsy Duodenum --
-- Duodenal mucosa (19 fragments) without evidence of villous blunting or active inflammation
B. Biopsy Gastric Antrum --
-- Antral mucosa without inflammation
-- Negative for helicobacter pylori
C. Biopsy GE junction --
-- gastric-type mucosa, no evidence of intestinal metaplasia
-- Chronic inflammation, mild
D. Random colon biopsy --
-- colonic mucosa, no evidence of lymphocytic or collagenous colitis
-- no evidence of active inflammation
A. Sections are of nineteens fragments of colonic mucosa shoing a villous architecture. An underlying lymphocytic and plasmacytic infiltrate is present. Active inflammation or villous blunting is not evident.
B. Sections are of the gastric antral mucosa are without inflammation. Special stains for helicobacter pylori are negative.
C. Sections of the GE junction consist of fragments of gastric-type mucosa with adjacent squamous mucosa. The gastric component does not show any intestinal metaplasia. Mild chronic inflammation is present.
D. Sections are of fragments of colonic mucosa in which the glandular pattern is uniform. There is a diffuse mild lymphocytic and plasmacytic infiltrate throughout the lamina propria. The trichrome stain does not show thickening of the basement membrane.
Note: All controls show appropriate reactivity.
A. Received in formalin labeled 'biopsy, duodenum count number of biopsies, rule out celiac disease' , the specimen consists of nineteen tissue fragments, 0.3-0.4 cm. The entire specimen is submitted in cassette A.
B. Recieved in formalin labeled 'biopsy, gastric antrum' ,the specimen consists of two pale pink tissues, 0.2 and 0.7 cm, submitted in cassette B.
C. Received in formalin labeled 'biopsy, GE junction' , the specimen consists of three white tissue fragments, 0.2-0.4 cm, submitted in cassette C.
D. Received in formalin labeled 'random colon biopsy' , the speciment consists of ten white tissue fragments, 0.2-0.5 cm, submitted in cassette D.
For whoever reads through all this, thank you!! I underlined the descriptions that show something that seems abnormal, and I dont understand what it means.
