No Image


This esophageal biopsy shows Barrett mucosa consisting of specialized columnar epithelium with numerous goblet cells. The glands in the deeper portions show minimal architectural distortion and nuclear hyperchromasia. Nucleoli are not prominent and mitotic activity is not increased. These changes are secondary to inflammation and reflect reactive atypia. They are not dysplastic.
