A 43-year-old woman referred to our gastroenterology clinic with dyspepsia and heartburn. In her medical history, she complained of epigastric pain and globus signs and took anti-acids periodically. She did not have weight loss and there was no family history of gastrointestinal malignancy. She had microcytic anemia, which was treated with daily ferrous (2 pills, 50 mg elemental iron). During the physical examination, only tenderness at epigastrium was noted. Clinical signs including globus Pharyngeus did not improve in spite of two months of treatment with proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Considering the patient's age, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was done and a small polyp lesion (5 mm) was seen in the upper esophagus  (figure 1). A biopsy sample was taken and H&E staining is shown in figures 2, 3, and 4.
