The pathology of chronic oesophagitis
  1. Robert J. Sandry


    This paper reports the results of a histological study of severe chronic oesophagitis. The material consisted of 46 specimens removed by oesophagogastrectomy. Two distinct types of lesion were found: chronic superficial oesophagitis and localized penetrating ulceration, the latter being found closely related to intrusions of gastric cardiac type (mucosa) into the lower oesophagus.
