ABSTRACT
This article presents a study which evaluate stomach lesions histologically. On endoscopic examination of the stomach small white lesions are frequently seen. They are generally thought to be due to a breach in the mucosa and are usually referred to as "erosions". In the majority of the patients there was no demonstrable break in the mucosa from the biopsies of the erosion. The other histological changes were also largely identical to the surrounding mucosa. The term erosion would therefore appear to be inappropriate in most patients.
