This study was conducted at our centre between September 2018 to August 2020. This was a prospective observational study. All Patients undergoing upper G.I. endoscopy both on IPD and OPD basis were considered for the study. All were screened for inclusion and exclusion criterias and those who were eligible for the study were explained about the study and asked for the voluntary consent. Those who had given written consent were included in the study. The most common endoscopic findings are present in the stomach(44.5%), followed by esophagus(29%), duodenum(21.5%). Normal endoscopic study account for 5%. The most common endoscopic finding in the study is gastritis accounting for 41.5%, followed by esophagitis(21%), duodenitis(16%). The most common alarm symptom is vomiting, accounting for 38%, followed by weight loss(13%) and G.I. bleed(10%). the most common risk factors for dyspepsia were alcohol(46.5%), followed by Smoking(35%) and pan chewing(44%). Benign conditions like gastritis, esophagitis, duodenitis, peptic ulcer, and duodenal ulcer are more common in patients with <50 years of age. Upper G.I. endoscopy is a useful diagnostic modality to identify the specific pathology in patients with dyspepsia. The common abnormal Endoscopic findings in patients with dyspepsia include gastritis, esophagitis, and duodenitis. Alcohol and Smoking are the major risk factor for dyspepsia. Dyspepsia with alarm symptoms increases the risk of malignancy.
