comment:

Hemorrhage characterized by free red blood cells in the lamina propria ( Figure 1image opens in a pop-up window ), submucosa ( Figure 2image opens in a pop-up window ) or muscular wall of the stomach is uncommon and usually secondary to treatment-related inflammation, erosion, ulceration, necrosis, or thrombosis ( Figure 3image opens in a pop-up window and Figure 4image opens in a pop-up window , arrows).

recommendation:

Hemorrhage should be diagnosed and graded. Hemorrhage in an area of necrosis or inflammation is usually not diagnosed separately, unless it is a prominent component of the lesion, but should be described in the pathology narrative.
