ABSTRACT High esophageal stricture associated with a circumferential "inlet patch" of heterotopic gastric mucosa is reported in 2 patients. Biopsy specimens taken from the strictures demonstrated inflamed or ulcerated gastric fundal-type mucosa in both cases. Dilatation of the strictures followed by treatment with histamine H2-antagonists produced almost complete resolution of dysphagia in both patients.

    ABSTRACT: Cette étude porte sur 246 ulcères « peptiques » de ľœsophage classés selon les données endoscopiques en quatre types (ulcère de Wolf, ulcère de Lyall, ulcère de Savary et ulcère de Barrett). Elle démontre que tous ces ulcères sont en règle générale provoqués par le reflux gastro-œsophagien pathologique et non pas par la muqueuse cylindrique hétérotopique du bas-œsophage. De plus, elle prouve que de nombreux ulcères de Barrett se développent comme la totalité des ulcères jonctionnels sur la muqueuse épidermoïde de ľœsophage. This study focussed on 246 peptic ulcers of the esophagus. These were put into four categories according to endoscopic data : Wolffs ulcer, Lyalľs ulcer, Savory’s ulcer and Barretťs ulcer. The data showed that all of these ulcers were generally caused by pathological gastroesophageal reflux and not by columnar heterotopic mucosa of the lower esophagus. Furthermore, the study proves that a large number of Barrett ulcers develop on the epithelium of the esophagus in the same way as all junctional ulcers. Este estudio se hace sobre 246 úlceras « pépticas » en el esófago clasificadas según los datos endoscópicos en cuatro tipos (úlcera de Wolf, úlcera de Lyall, úlcera de Savary y úlcera de Barrett). Demuestra que todas estas úlceras por regla general son producidas por el reflujo gastro-esofágico patológico y no por la mucosa cilíndrica heterotópica del esófago inferior. Además el estudio prueba que numerosas úlceras de Barrett se desarrollan como la totalidad de las úlceras de la unión mucosa esófago-gástrica, sobre la mucosa epidermoide del esófago.

    ABSTRACT: The mucin profile of 24 endoscopic biopsies of heterotopic gastric mucosa (HGM) of the upper esophagus in adults and a control group of ten cases of Meckel's diverticula containing heterotopic gastric mucosa were studied with two combined histochemical methods: alcian blue pH 2.5/PAS and high iron diamine/alcian blue pH 2.5. The clinical and light microscopic features of the 24 HGM cases were also reviewed. In addition to overall secretion of neutral mucins by the 24 HGM cases, mucin histochemistry showed prominent secretion of acidic mucins in 19 of 24 HGM cases (79%), with sulphomucins in 11 of 24 HGM cases (45.8%). This mucin profile of HGM was unlike that of either normal gastric mucosa or heterotopic gastric mucosa in Meckel's diverticula. Moreover, a comparison between the mucin profile and clinical features of HGM and Barrett's esophagus showed certain similarities. The data suggest a physiopathologic link between HGM and Barrett's esophagus.
