The one by DeMeester requires biopsies from the stomach, GEJ, and every cm of columnar metaplasia, all this processed and labeled as separate specimens Metaplasia in BE with no goblet cells has been recently suggested to represent a number of molecular abnormalities similar to those in epithelia with goblet cells While the prevalence of BE is higher in males, both males and females with BE share reflux severity, and the female gender does not protect from BE within the context of advanced GERD Hospital Universitario “12 barrt Octubre”.


The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has increased substantially in the Western world in recent years. GERD is a well-known factor for ADC development, and significant acid suppression is deemed to potentially prevent tumor development. Definition of Barrett’s esophagus: D ICD – Considerable variability is seen in assessment esofgo dysplasia among pathologists. Recently, immunohistochemical analysis with antibodies to CDX-2 specific for mid and hindgut intestinal derivation has also been used to identify true intestinal-type metaplastic cells.

Circumferential cylindrical epithelium, with IM. Studies with a long follow-up are needed to confirm that BE clearance is sustained over time.

Clinical and Translational Science. Circumferential cylindrical epithelium, no IM. Risk factors for cylindrical metaplasia development are well established: The difference in distribution of fat among men more central and women more peripheral may explain the increased risk in males.

The British Journal of Surgery. This system leads to identify previously mentioned endoscopic marks GEJ, Z line, hiatal imprintextent of circumferential metaplasia, and proximal metaplasia tongues determining BE length. This change is considered to be a premalignant condition because it is associated with a high incidence of further transition to esophageal adenocarcinomaan often deadly cancer.

Barrett’s esophagus occurs due to chronic inflammation. However, the indication is that proton baret inhibitors are effective in limiting the progression of esophageal cancer. Am J Epidemiol ; Three patterns have been described for chromoendoscopy with Indigo carmine: Updated guidelines for the diagnosis, surveillance and therapy of Barrett’s esophagus.

Use of the histochemical stain Alcian blue pH 2. The association between alcohol and reflux esophagitis, Se esophagus, and esophageal adenocarcinoma. Assessment of relationship to submucosal glands and transitional-type epithelium with examination of multiple levels through the tissue may allow the pathologist to reliably distinguish between goblet cells of submucosal gland ducts and true Barrett’s esophagus specialized columnar metaplasia.


The hiatal imprint is also important to correctly identify hiatal barrer, a condition where the presence and length of columnar metaplasia may be more difficult to barrett Histological analysis of endoscopic resection specimens from patients with Barrett’s esophagus and early neoplasia.
