ABSTRACT
Linear erosions of hiatus hernia are believed to be caused by mucosal folds rubbing together in the neck of the hiatus and are associated with iron deficiency anaemia. Researchers in this study have reviewed the endoscopic records for 1996-2000 to identify other associations. As more than a third of patients with large hiatus hernias have linear erosions and almost all patients with columnar lined oesophagus (CLO) have a significant hiatus hernia, the unexpected low prevalence of the two lesions occurring together raises the possibility that the profoundly incompetent lower oesophageal sphincter which predisposes to CLO also protects against the development of linear erosions.
