Answer

See the list below:

  • Histologic findings include a superficial infiltrate with substantial numbers of plasma cells and lymphocytes within the gastric mucosa and organisms visible on Giemsa, Diff-Quick, or hematoxylin and eosin staining. Sensitive staining for small numbers of bacteria is possible using silver stains such as Genta or Warthin-Starry.
