Barrett's esophagus can be seen in younger patients, but is most commonly diagnosed in patients ~ 55 years old.
Epidemiology and Demographics
- The incidence of Barrett's esophagus is approximately 400 per 100,000 individuals worldwide.
- The prevalence of barrett's esophagus is approximately 2000 per 100,000 individuals worldwide.
- The incidence of Barrett's esophagus increases with age; the median age at diagnosis is 55 years.
- Barrett's esophagus hardly affects individuals younger than 5 years of age.
- Barrett's esophagus can be seen in younger patients, but is most commonly diagnosed in patients ~ 55 years old.
- It is an acquired condition, seen in children but rarely in younger than age of five.
- Barrett's esophagus usually affects individuals of the Caucasians race. Blacks and Asians individuals are less likely to develop Barrett's esophagus.
- The prevalence in hispanic population is unclear, some studies compare it to caucasian prevalence and other studies show a lower prevalence.
- Males are more commonly affected by Barrett's esophagus than females. The male to female ratio is approximately 1.96 to 1.
- Barrett's esophagus is a common disease that tends to affect equally to people in both Asian countries as well as Western countries.
- In one of the study in Sweden, it is published that the estimated rate of Barrett's esophagus in the general population was around 1.6 percent.
- Based on these data, the estimated prevalence rate of Barrett's esophagus in the United States population, it would be around 3.3 million individuals.
- Barrett's esophagus is very common in developing countries and it shares the same kind of risk factors and potential towards neoplastic process as compared to those seen in developed countries.
