It does not have goblet cells. Like the cardiac metaplasia of squamous epithelium resulted from a genetic switch, oxyntocardiac mucosa is generated in cardiac mucosa by activation of a different differentiating genetic signal—possibly a combination of BMP-4 and the Sonic Hedgehog gene [47]. Sonic hedgehog gene is the usual genetic signal in the gastric oxyntic mucosa and is required for development of parietal cells in gastrointestinal columnar epithelia [48]. ” The second type of change in cardiac epithelium occurs as a result of development of goblet cells which can appear in the surface, foveolar region, or in the glands.

The length of the squamo-oxyntic gap at first presentation is an exquisitely accurate measure of the severity of reflux. Oberg et al. [53] from our unit showed that the presence of cardiac and/or oxyntocardiac mucosa in biopsies of endoscopically normal patients compared with their absence correlated significantly with a greater likelihood of an abnormal 24-h pH test and lower esophageal sphincter abnormalities. In a study of pediatric patients at Harvard, Glickman et al. [54] showed that children who had greater than 1 mm of measured cardiac mucosa between the squamous epithelium and the first observed parietal cell had significantly greater evidence of reflux than those with less than 1 mm of cardiac mucosa.
