There are a lot of contradiction and uncertainty related to Barrett's esophagus. Authors review the literature about the incidence, the aetiology, the pathology of the ailment, the possibility of diagnosis and treatment. 25 Barrett's esophagus were observed in the course of controlling of patients after antireflux operations and investigations of patients suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease. X-ray examination, endoscopy, biopsy, 24-hour pH monitoring of the distal esophagus and esophageal manometry were performed. Because of the possibility of malignant transformation Barrett's esophagus requires yearly endoscopic surveillance and biopsy at least. Antireflux procedure does not protect against the development of adenocarcinoma.
