Oesophageal Inlet Patch
The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these new high resolution files some larger images are displayed.
Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.
An Inlet Patch is a small area of gastric epithelium in the upper part of the oesophagus. It is most often of no clinical significance and is probably of congenital origin. However, this heterotopic gastric mucosa can be colonized by Helicobacter pylori, causing a symptomac ulceration in the inlet patch. As seen in some of these images, these patches can be multiple.
