Definition:any structural anomaly of the distinct glandular stomach area which in rodents is demarcated from the non-glandular forestomach by the limiting ridge (margo plicatus); the glandular stomach is connected to the small intestine (duodenum); the wall of the glandular stomach consists of, from inside to outside, simple columnar epithelium containing gastric glands, the lamina propria (epithelium and lamina propria form the glandular mucosa), the muscularis mucosae, the submucosa, the muscularis interna and externa (inner circular and outer longitudinal layers of smooth muscle), and the serosa; the gastric glands lined by simple columnar epithelium form deep gastric pits (foveolae) that are perpendicular to the wall of the stomach; three types of gastric glands exist; the cardiac glands, located near the limiting ridge, contain mucous cells; the pyloric glands also contain mucous cells; the fundic glands, which make up the majority of the gastric glands, contain a variety of cells: mucous neck cells, small, basophilic chief cells, and large, round parietal cells with a granular eosinophilic cytoplasm
