By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A disease, characterized by pyrexia; great anxiety; heat and pain in the epigastrium, increased by taking any thing into the stomach; vomiting and hiccup. Gastritis may either be seated in the peritoneal or mucous coat. It is most frequently in the latter- Esogastritis, Endogastritis, Gastromycoderitis, Gastritis mucosa- being excited directly by acrid ingesta. It requires the most active treatment; -bleeding, blistering, fomentations, diluents, &c. Some degree of inflammation of the mucous coat of the stomach was considered by the followers of Broussais to be present in almost all fevers; and the various forms of dyspepsia have been supposed by some to be nothing more than chronic endogastritis.
