AM Tou, AO Al-Nimr. JPGN 2021; 72: 690-692. Esophageal Squamous Papilloma in Children: A Single-center Case
- Of 12,459 children who had an EGD (2000-2014), 10 children (0.08%) were identified with an esophageal squamous papillom (ESP)a on biopsy. Ages ranged from 2 to 17 years.
- All samples tested for HPV via FISH analysis were negative
The authors note that “surveillance is …largely considered unnecessary.”
My take: ESP is a rare benign lesion found incidentally in the pediatric population.
