A gastric biopsy was originally correctly interpreted as intramucosal adenocarcinoma but interpreted as chronic gastritis with foveolar hyperplasia and reactive changes by WSI review of an image scanned at an original magnification of x20 (Figure 2, A).
1% of nonneoplastic gastric epithelia; the most intense expression appeared to be present predominately within the deep foveolar pits, the isthmus, and the areas of intestinal metaplasia.
Gastric cardia is characterized by the identification of at least 2 of the following features: vertical pit structure; well-defined, epithelial surface reflectivity; relatively poor image penetration; and/or broad, regular foveolar regions or rugae.

Although the monoclonal antibodies SP3 and 4B5 have increased sensitivity (75% and 96%, respectively), cystoplasmic and nuclear background staining (Figure 1, E) has been observed with high frequency in benign gastric foveolar epithelium, reactive epithelial cells near ulcers, and areas of intestinal metaplasia, and within areas of carcinoma.
In some cases, the normal gastric foveolar epithelium showed nonspecific cytoplasmic staining, thought to be due to high mucin content of these cells.
