CORRELATIVE STUDY OF HISTOPATHOLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS WITH CLINICAL & ENDOSCOPIC DIAGNOSIS IN UPPER GASTROINTESTINAL ENDOSCOPIC BIOPSY AT TERTIARY CARE CENTER
Keywords:Histopathology, endoscopy, gastrointestinal lesions.
Lesions of Upper gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is commonly seen in surgical department patients. These patients are subjected to endoscopic examination and biopsy is taken for further histopathological diagnosis. A clinical, endoscopic and histopathological diagnosis is made. This study was done to compare and correlate the results of histopathological diagnosis with endoscopic and clinical findings.
Study Designed: A total 50 Upper Gastrointestinal tract biopsy cases received in histopathology lab were analyzed.
Material and Method: All endoscopic biopsies from upper GIT were received and processed. Paraffin blocks were made and sections were cut at 4 microns thickness and stained with routine hematoxylin and eosin stain. Their clinical and endoscopic reports were collected and compared with histopathological diagnosis.
Result: After analyzing statistically the data, we found that endoscopy results were better than clinical diagnosis and more closer to histopathological diagnosis.
Conclusion: Relation of histopathological diagnosis with endoscopic findings & clinical diagnosis was done in our study. We conclude that endoscopy is incomplete without histopathological examination of biopsy & so, the combinations of both plays an important role in diagnosis & management of upper gastrointestinal tract disorders. Histopathological examination remains the gold standard.
