Abstract

As typical complications of hiatal hernias, Cameron lesions often go unnoticed in clinical practice, in particular, in patients with presumed overt and/or obscure upper gastrointestinal bleeding. However, albeit not yet systematically studied, Cameron lesions might be highlighted by novel image-enhanced endoscopic technologies, such as linked color imaging (LCI). Reminiscent of erosive reflux lesions, these lesions may present as reddish streaks, frank ulceration, and/or any other variation within this spectrum. However, an endoscopic presentation as “reverse reflux”-type Cameron lesions, mirroring typical erosive reflux lesions at the Z line, may represent a unique, novel endoscopic presentation.
