Gastric stenosis in severe corrosive gastritis: prognostic evaluation by endoscopic ultrasonography.

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic ultrasonography can provide high-resolution images of the gastric wall.

CASE REPORT: A 24-year-old woman with severe corrosive gastritis following massive ingestion of an alkaline household chemical was examined with endoscopic ultrasonography using a 20-MHz probe. Endoscopic ultrasonography disclosed diffuse thickening of the entire gastric wall and lack of demarcation of the muscular layer in the antrum. Several weeks after the ingestion, stenosis developed in the antrum and was treated with laparoscopic gastrectomy.

DISCUSSION: Endoscopic ultrasonography can provide accurate evaluation of depth of lesions in corrosive gastritis and may be useful in predicting gastric stenosis.
