BLANCO A, Camilo; TEUSABA T, Esperanza  and  RUSSI, Karen. A Case Report of Circumferential Presentation with Stricture of Heterotopic Gastric Mucosa in the Cervical Esophagus. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.2, pp.225-231. ISSN 0120-9957.

Heterotopic gastric mucosa in the cervical esophagus is a condition that is probably underdiagnosed. The vast majority of patients are asymptomatic, and detection is an incidental finding. In symptomatic patients, manifestations are associated with non-neoplastic or neoplastic changes that allow categorization into five types. The case presented here is a patient who had Type III with dysphagia and pharyngeal globus due to heterotopic gastric mucosa in the cervical esophagus with circumferential presentation with stenosis. At the time of publication, only seven similar cases could be found in the literature. Detection, supported by new imaging technologies such as chromoendoscopy, may be an indicator of the quality of endoscopic performance in a manner that is similar to detection of adenomas in colonoscopy

Keywords : Patches in the cervical esophagus; gastric heterotopic mucosa in the cervical esophagus; esophageal patches; globus pharyngeal; cervical esophagus; endoscopic diagnosis.
