Stomach, Glandular Stomach - Hemorrhage
comment:Hemorrhage characterized by free red blood cells in the lamina propria ( Figure 1 ), submucosa ( Figure 2 ) or muscular wall of the stomach is uncommon and usually secondary to treatment-related inflammation, erosion, ulceration, necrosis, or thrombosis ( Figure 3 and Figure 4 , 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.
