PMID:  6731415     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The gastrointestinal manifestations of scleroderma are varied. Esophageal problems are common especially in patients with Raynaud's phenomenon. An adenocarcinoma complicating a Barrett's esophagus was identified in a patient with the CREST variant of scleroderma. The significance of this association and its relationship to chronic reflux esophagitis is discussed. Patients with scleroderma should be considered to be at an increased risk of developing this premalignant condition of the esophagus.
