5. Gastropathy vs Gastritis
Gastritis and gastropathy are diseases that damage the mucosa lining of the stomach. The stomach lining is irritated with gastritis. The stomach lining is destroyed with gastropathy, yet there is minimal or no inflammation. Gastritis and gastropathy can be chronic, meaning they grow slowly over time and last a long period, or acute, meaning they occur quickly and last a short time. Some types are erosive, which means they erode the stomach lining and produce erosions and ulcers. Other types are not as corrosive.
