In summary, lymphocytic gastritis is an uncommon form of gastritis that may be an incidental finding at endoscopy or be a cause of hypoalbuminemia, gastrointestinal bleeding, anorexia, or weight loss. The discovery of lymphocytic gastritis should prompt clinical consideration of celiac sprue. Serologic testing for H pylori should also be performed and treatment initiated if results are positive.
