This stock medical illustration compares a normal, healthy stomach to one with atrophic gastritis. Atrophic gastritis is a chronic inflammation of the lining of the stomach, that results in the loss of glands in the stomach (atrophy) and decreased stomach acid production. The stomach on the right of the picture shows the smooth surface and decreased height of the rugae (surface folds) of the stomach lining.
