gastric erosion

Minor damage to the stomach lining causing areas with many fine, superficial bleeding points. Gastric erosion is the first stage in the development of a stomach ulcer. It is caused by local irritants such as alcohol and aspirin, but is also a feature of severe stress, blood infection (SEPTICAEMIA) and large burns.
