Caption: Metaplasia in the gastric antrum, endoscopic view. Metaplasia is a change of cell type in a region. Here, the normal epithelial cells lining the stomach, have been replaced (right) by cells similar to those found lining the intestines. Metaplasia occurs to prevent damage to the underlying tissues. If the area is exposed to an unusual environment the cells of the lining change into another type more suited to the new environment. If the stimulus causing the metaplasia is removed, the lining returns to its original form.
