Clinicopathological Study of Lesions of Upper Gastrointestinal Tract
Keywords:Gastrointestinal tract, neoplastic lesions, Gall bladder.
62 sections of the GIT tract were used in this study. It was possible to get biopsies from the esophagus, mouth, stomach, duodenum, liver, small intestine, colon, rectum, and anal canal. Most of the specimens came from people aged 21 to 30 (24), then from people aged 11 to 20 (16), 31 to 40 (10), 41 to 50 (8), and older than 50 (4). There were 50 tumors that were not cancerous and 12 that were. Most of the non-cancerous tumors were found in the gall bladder, then the stomach, and finally the small intestine. The gall bladder was the organ most often affected by cancerous tumors (5), followed by the stomach. Chronic inflammatory lesions of the esophagus were seen in 10, appendicular lesions were seen in 3, gall bladder lesions were seen in 26, intestinal perforation was seen in 4, Crohn's disease of the small intestine was seen in 5, and peptic ulcers were seen in 2. Three of the cases had SCC of the esophagus, one had adenocarcinoma of the small intestine, one had adenocarcinoma of the large intestine, two had SCC of the stomach, and five had adenoma of the gall bladder. The authors found that most of the non-cancerous tumors were in the gall bladder and were found in people aged 21 to 30.
