Core Tip Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been diagnosed with conventional endoscopy and 24-h esophageal pH monitoring. There are three forms of GERD: nonerosive reflux disease (NERD), reflux esophagitis (RE) and Barrett's esophagus (BE). However, whether GERD is a spectrum of diseases or a "tripartite" disease remains unclear. Using narrow band imaging agnifying endoscopy, we observed no significant differences in the lower esophagus among patients with the three forms of GERD. There was also no increasing trend from NERD, RE to BE, indicating that these subtypes might be independent of each other. Thus, GERD is a "tripartite" disease, rather than a spectrum of diseases.
