Were you looking for information about Barrett's Esophagus? Barrett's esophegus is a common misspelling of Barrett's esophagus.
Barrett's esophagus is a medical condition that occurs when the esophagus forms new types of cells on its surface that are similar to those found in the intestines. Although the exact causes of this condition are unknown, certain risk factors (such as GERD, age, and obesity) increase the likelihood of developing it. Barrett's esophagus can ultimately lead to a rare but deadly cancer called esophageal adenocarcinoma.
