The role of atrophic gastritis of the gastric corpus (fundal atrophic gastritis) as a high-risk factor was investigated by studying operative findings and follow-up data on 690 patients with benign gastric diseases recorded at the Osaka Cancer Registry.
The extent of fundal atrophic gastritis was determined by the endoscopic Congo red test.
The patients were followed-up from the time of endoscopic examination (1968 to 1976) to December 31, 1987.
The vital status of 654 patients (94.8%) at the end of the observation period was determined.
During the follow-up period, 22 patients were found to have gastric cancer.
