Determining invasion on endoscopy (without the assistance of ultrasound) can be unreliable. 3 Microscopic Pathology In general, when dysplasia develops in Barrett esophagus, glands acquire a dark blue hue as cells loose mucin, become more crowded, and develop enlarged, hyperchromatic nuclei. These features should extend from the base of the glands up to the luminal surface. Unique in low-grade dysplasia, the crypt architecture is preserved with minimal distortion, containing cells with elongated, “pencil-shaped” nuclei limited to the basal portion of the cytoplasm.

Generally flat lesions with extensive infiltration and very little discernible demarcation; the term linitis plastica is applied when a gastric carcinoma exhibits a type IV pattern of growth and involves the majority of the gastric wall (Fig. 13c) [44]. Although seemingly straightforward, there has been some ambiguity in the distinction between cancers arising from the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) and those arising from the gastric cardia. This may be difficult to determine histologically due to overlapping microscopic features of the two entities, and there has even been some disagreement as to whether the gastric cardia is anatomically native mucosa or a metaplastic/reactive process to esophageal reflux or other insults [12].

The cause of neuroendocrine neoplasms is relatively better understood in the stomach than in NETs found in the esophagus. Gastrin has a trophic effect on enterochromaffin-like cells found in the stomach. Long-standing hypergastrinemia, resulting from either unregulated release by a gastrinoma or secondary to achlorhydria (due to chronic H. pylori infection or autoimmune chronic atrophic gastritis), is consistently accompanied by enterochromaffin-like cell hyperplasia. Consistent trophic stimulation in unison with chronic inflammation can potentially advance neuroendocrine hyperplasia further into neoplasia.
