 Advantages and disadvantages of the Sydney System, a gastritis classification system proposed in 1990, were evaluated. Classification based on this system showed good agreement with results of the conventional classification based on endoscopic findings made by our staff members. They have become more attentive to mucosal findings than before since they were asked to record endoscopic findings in accordance with the Sydney System. These findings, coupled with the importance of studies on the relationship between Helicobacter pylori and various gastric diseases, indicate that it is useful to classify gastritis according to the Sydney System. Although this system has some disadvantages, it should be accepted for use in Japan as well.
