Atrophic gastritis denotes the end stage of chronic gastritis, both infectious and autoimmune. In both cases, the clinical manifestations of atrophic gastritis are the same as those of chronic gastritis. Most patients are asymptomatic. Anorexia is a rare clinical manifestation; other rare manifestations may include nausea, vomiting, or significant weight loss.

Pernicious anemia is observed exclusively in patients with autoimmune gastritis and not in those with H pylori–associated atrophic gastritis.
