Lomo and colleagues, (8) using microdissection, immunohistochemical, molecular techniques, showed that what they called basal crypt dysplasia-like atypia was similar to conventional LGD and HGD rather than to nondysplastic Barrett epithelium. However, clinical follow-up was not available for the patients in that article, so the clinical significance remained unknown.
