Abstract
Barrett's esophagus is an acquired condition in which the stratified squamous epithelium is replaced by metaplastic, intestinal-type columnar epithelium. It develops as a result of chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease, and predisposes to the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma. This review is focused on histologic diagnosis and differential diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus.
Key Words: Barrett's esophagus; Esophageal adenocarcinoma; Histology
