Atrophic chronic gastritis (ACG) is a preneoplastic condition of gastric carcinoma. Numerous studies have shown anxiety and depression can affect gastrointestinal function, which may promote gastrointestinal disorders development and progression. Thus, we hypothesized that anxiety and depression may enhance the development and progression of ACG. In this study, we aimed to analyse risk factors for anxiety and depression in ACG patients and integrate these risk factors to construct an effective clinical prediction model.
