ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to diagnosis of younger patients with columnar lined oesophagus by following dyspepsia guidelines for endoscopy. To assess whether strategies to reduce endoscopy in younger patients would significantly affect the diagnosis of columnar lined oesophagus (CLO), researchers have reviewed approximately 7200 endoscopy reports for 1966-7 and 2000-1. The introduction of stricter guidelines for endoscopy in younger patients will lead to some younger patients with simple dyspepsia and CLO remaining undiagnosed each year but there was no evidence in this study of an early progression to dyplasia in this group.
