Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Heterotopic gastric mucosa appears as salmon patch at the lower part of the esophagus.

This is a benign or harmless condition.

This is associated with acid reflux disorder.

The risk of malignant transformation is very low.

No special followup or work up is needed.
Best wishes,
