Duodenal ulcer represents the highest frequency (24%) of these abnormalities followed by gastritis (13%), duodenitis (7%), gastro duodenitis (4.4%), hiatus hernia & prolapse gastropathy (3.9%), reflux esophagitis (3.1%), gastric tumor (1.7%), gastric ulcer (1.3%), gastric outlet obstruction (1.2%) while tumor of esophagus found to be the lowest value (0.4%).
Of the all examined cases as well as cases with abnormal endoscopy (1195 case), the highest number of referred cases were from the age group 21-30year, and the lowest was from the age group 81-90years.
