The Prevalence of Intestinal Metaplasia in Patients with Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Type 1


Introduction: Intestinal metaplasia (IM) of the gastric mucosa is a relatively frequent precancerous lesion.

Aim(s): The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence and to find parameters that could predict the presence of intestinal metaplasia in gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms type 1 (GNEN1).

Materials and methods: Forty two (34 females) patients with GNEN1 were retrospectively studied. All patients included in the study had positive parietal-cell antibodies and were negative for Helicobacter pylori. All patients underwent a gastroscopy with multiple biopsies. Chromogranin A, gastrin, vitamin B12 and ferritin levels were also assessed.
