Part A(40 cm) and Part B(38 cm), shows gastric and acanthotic squamous mucosa with glycogen vacuolization. Some of gastric-type mucosa shows mild to moderate chronic, lymphoplasmacytic inflammation and mild regenerative change. A tiny focus of metaplastic surface glands is also seen.
Part C, from 36 cm., and Part D, from 34 cm., are similar in appearance. They consist of fragments of glandular, gastric-type mucosa showing focal goblet cell metaplasia, stratification of the glandular epithelium in some areas, and an increased nuclear:cytoplasmic ratio. There is also a slight increased complexity of some of the involved glands. In most, but not all areas, these atypical changes do not extend to the surface epithelium, a pattern suggestive of early, mild dysplastic change arising in a regenerative background.
