NIH Rare Diseases:42 Barrett syndrome, also known as barrett esophagus, is a disorder in which the lining of the esophagus (the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach) is replaced by tissue that is similar to the lining of the intestine. this process is called intestinal metaplasia. the exact cause of barrett syndrome is not known, but gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) is a risk factor for the condition. while barrett syndrome itself does not cause symptoms, the acid reflux associated with gerd often leads to symptoms of heartburn. less than 1% of people with barrett syndrome develop a rare type of cancer called esophageal adenocarcinoma. treatment of gerd should improve symptoms, and may keep barrett syndrome from getting worse. endoscopic or surgical treatments can be used to treat barrett syndrome with severe dysplasia or cancer. last updated: 3/5/2010
