Abstract

Biopsy samples from esophageal columnar metaplasia and dysplasia are commonly encountered in Western pathology practice and knowing a few pitfalls can save both pathologists and patients a great deal of anxiety. Herein we discuss criteria for Barrett esophagus, evaluation of dysplasia, and some pitfalls in reviewing endoscopic mucosal resections. Also included is a summary of suggested follow-up for patients with Barrett esophagus.
