Morphologic dysplasia remains the criterion standard of cancer risk in Barrett esophagus but poses many challenges including distinction from reactive inflammatory change. Gastric foveolar dysplasia, a newly described subtype comprising 15% to 20% of Barrett dysplasia, overlaps with reactive cardiac mucosa in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Despite the clinical importance of accurate distinction, the issue has not been studied. Review of 3698 biopsies from 461 Barrett patients yielded… CONTINUE READING
