Squamous Intraepithelial Neoplasia
In our part of the world (the upper midwestern United States), squamous epithelial neoplasms of the esophagus have become rare, and the common esophageal carcinoma is the Barrett’s adenocarcinoma. As a result, we have had very little recent experience with squamous neoplasms. Therefore, the chapters devoted to these neoplasms may be less informative than comparable chapters written in places where they are still common, such as Japan.
