A follow-up study of erosive prepyloric changes (EPC) was undertaken in 60 patients who originally presented with non-ulcer dyspepsia and EPC grade 2 or 3. After 45 (range, 24-60) months EPC grade 2 or 3 was still present in 80% of the patients, and 82% had unchanged dyspeptic symptoms. Most of the patients (77%) experienced a 'stressful' life situation. None of the patients had developed peptic ulceration during the follow-up period, and there were no indications of active or healed ulcerations or cancer at the follow-up study. The results indicate that EPC are chronic changes in the gastric mucosa closely associated with long-lasting dyspeptic symptoms.
