Figure 2: (a) Hematoxylin and eosin stain showed irregular subepithelial collagen thickening, most prominent in the antral mucosa (shown) with associated mild-to-moderate chronic inactive lamina propria inflammation composed of lymphocytes, plasma cells, and scattered eosinophils. The subepithelial collagen was further highlighted by trichrome stain (inset). (b) At higher power, the band of subepithelial collagen showed entrapped small vessels, occasional fibroblasts, and few inflammatory cells. Intestinal metaplasia was also appreciated focally within the antrum (arrow)
