Background. Autoimmune gastritis (AIG) is considered as one of the reasons for the formation of progressive atrophy of the gastric mucosa. This publication is presented for the purpose of updating information about AIG in the practice of a clinician and a morphologist. Description of the clinical case. A clinical example of AIG with step-by-step description of the stages of diagnosis is presented. The pathogenetic aspects of the formation of AIG, its endoscopic and morphological features, modern diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are discussed. Conclusion. For the diagnosis of AIG, a competent assessment of morphological changes, their localization, severity and prevalence with the subsequent analytical assessment of these changes in conjunction with serum markers, anamnestic data, and results of physical examination is required.
