- Found within Barrett's esophagus, resembles colonic adenoma (well defined sessile or pedunculated polyp, usually 0.5 - 1.5 cm), but often associated with invasive adenocarcinoma (Hum Pathol 1999;30:745), so recommended to not use "adenoma" terminology; may resemble dysplasia in ulcerative colitis
- 2% of all dysplasia seen in Barrett's esophagus
- Clinical, pathological and molecular features are similar to flat Barrett's dysplasia, less often has a pyloric gland phenotype (Virchows Arch 2005;446:537)
- Well defined sessile or pedunculated polypoid lesion, 4 to 15 mm
