In pathological terms, gastritis is defined as inflammation of the gastric mucosa. It is, however, a term often used loosely for clinical conditions associated with any upper gastrointestinal symptoms without clinical or radiological signs. Gastropathy, on the other hand, refers to a nonspecific microscopic injury pattern of stomach mucosa, with minimal or no inflammatory cell infiltration. Both gastritis and gastropathy may be clinically asymptomatic.
