Macroscopic study #19832/2017

An orderly, complete and systematic necropsy was performed. In the stomach, a marked thickening of the antral portion was observed. At the opening, in the pyloric antrum, the mucosal folds were marked and prominent. Focally, a round, 8x4 cm in dimensions, red and crateriform lesion, containing a blood clot in the center with prominent edges, whitish and indurated was observed in the lesser curvature (reagudized chronic ulcer). The gastric and duodenal mucosa is diffusely red (congestion). Gross diagnosis: severe reagudized chronic ulcerative gastritis associated with hypertrophic chronic gastritis.

Tissue samples were taken for histopathological study.
