Figure 1 Schematic representation of the progression of atrophy, from absent in the case of antrum-predominant non-atrophic gastritis depicted on the left to the almost generalized metaplastic atrophy depicted on the right. The increased extension of atrophy corresponds to an increased cancer risk, indicated as an expanding triangle. The extension of atrophy can also be reported as a stage from 0 to 4.
