The causes, natural history, and therapeutic implications of gastropathy differ from gastritis:
Gastritis is commonly secondary to infectious or autoimmune etiologies.
Gastropathy is commonly secondary to endogenous or exogenous irritants, such as bile reflux, alcohol, or aspirin and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs.
However, gastropathy can also be secondary to ischemia, physical stress, or chronic congestion.
