Biopsy Results... Opinions?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Had positive DGP IGG... 3.59IV positive is GT .90

Biopsy says

A. Duodenal mucosal biopsies with no significant microscopic abnormality. No diagnostic histology all features of celiac are appreciated.

B. Gastric antral and oxytocin mucosal biopsies showing chronic gastritis. Reactive foveolar hyperplasia is present. H. Pylori is negative

The material present is partly tangentially sectioned. The villous crypt ratio is about 3.5. There are intraepithelial lymphocytes but they don't seem to be significantly increased in most of the villi. There are inflammatory cells in the lamina propria including plasma cells and lymphocytes with an occasional germinal center. They are normal to slightly increased in number. No histologically diagnostic features of celiac are appreciated

Opinions anyone??? I'm confused see. Lymphocytic gastritis can be associated with celiac plus my positive blood test!! Ahh maybe I'll just give up the gluten and see how I feel
