[41] Reid BJ, Weinstein WM, Lewin KJ, et al. Endoscopic biopsy can detect high-grade dysplasia or early adenocarcinoma in Barrett’s esophagus without grossly recognizable neoplastic lesions.

The most widely accepted histologic grading scheme for Barrett’s-related dysplasia has been adapted from the classification system used for idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease-related dysplasia and is discussed below [44]. In most Western countries, including the United States, Barrett’s-related dysplasia is classified as negative, indefinite, or positive (low grade or high grade). However, pathologists from Asia and Europe prefer the Vienna system of classification. The Vienna system of classifying dysplasia is very similar to the one described earlier, except that the term “noninvasive neoplasia” is used for dysplasia and “suspicious for invasive carcinoma” is used when the cytoarchitectural features are equivocal for tissue invasion.

However, this strategy has several challenges. The causative molecular and cellular abnormalities predicting disease progression remain poorly understood. Moreover, there is a large proportion of patients with BE who remain undiagnosed within the population. Hence, in practice, there are problems of over and underdiagnosis, which hamper optimal clinical management. D. Pleskow & T. Erim (Eds): Barrett’s Esophagus. 2 GENETICS OF BARRETT’S ESOPHAGUS AND ESOPHAGEAL ADENOCARCINOMA Research spanning the last 50 years has definitively shown that cancer is an acquired genetic disease whereby genomic instability within cells allows for an accumulation of advantageous genetic alterations leading to uncontrolled proliferation [1].
