Abstract

There is general agreement that a strict relationship exists between gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), esophagitis, and Barrett's esophagus (BE). Being GERD one of the most frequent gastroenterological condition, still unknown factors are responsible for the development of BE, which occurs only in a minority of patients (7 to 23 %). From prevalence data in general population inferred from autopsy report, it seems that the majority of cases of BE remain undiagnosed during lifetime. Hypotheses are advanced on the relevance of factors such as alcaline reflux, or the intraesophageal level of reflux. At the present time, there is need for further studies in order to achieve a more satisfactory understanding of the relationship between esophagitis and BE, and the impact of surgical and medical antireflux therapy on the progression of the disease. Periodic surveillance of the more severe forms of GERD and esophagitis seems to be appropriate because of the quite high incidence of BE (16 to 23 %) in these patients.
