High Resolution Images: Erosive Duodenitis (or Bulbitis)The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.

Erosive duodenitis is usually of peptic origin, caused by chronic exposure to gastric acid and most often a Helicobacter pylori-infection. Histologically gastric mucous cell metaplasia is often found. Erosive duodenitis is a precursor to duodenal ulcer. Crohn´s disease in the duodenum can be macroscopically indistinguishable from peptic erosive duodenitis.
