Barrett's oesophagus

Barrett's oesophagus

A gullet (oesophagus) in which long-standing inflammation (oesophagitis) has led to a change in the nature of the lining mucus membrane to a columnar form. An ulcer may develop (Barrett's ulcer) and lead to narrowing (stricture) or possibly cancer. (Norman Rupert Barrett, Australian-born English surgeon, 1903–1979).
