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,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
