1). According to Barrett, this represents congenital short esophagus with a gastric ulcer in the tubular stomach. He claimed that the absence of inflammation and stricture makes this different from the esophageal ulcers that occur in reflux esophagitis, which involve squamous epithelium. Barrett achieved the t w o m a i n objectives of his paper. First, he correctly d i s c r e d i t e d the concept of ulcers arising in islets of heterotopic gastric m u c o s a in the lower e s o p h a g u s .
