ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on Barrett's oesophagus in young adults. Barrett's oesophagus may occur in children and young adults. "Multilayered epithelium" (ME) has been recently described as a precursor to Barrett's oesophagus, however, it has not been studied in young adults. In addition, little attention has been paid to inflammatory cells of Barrett's mucosa in this group. In this study, ME was rarely identified in either patient groups and no difference in the prevalence of ME was identified between younger and older patients. Therefore, the role of ME as a precursor lesion must remain uncertain.
