Inflammation of the stomach - Definition


Definition


Inflammation of the stomach is called gastritis. This is the inflammation of the stomach lining that can be acute, often due to an infection and often reversible, or a chronic phenomenon, when it lasts over the long term. Chronic gastritis is more common and is mainly due to two causes, an autoimmune origin, by the action of antibodies on its own cells; and an infectious origin, due to the presence of a bacterium, Helicobacter Pylori, which maintains stomach inflammation. The main symptom of gastritis is a sudden pain, characterized by heartburn sensations climbing along the esophagus into the throat.
