Esophageal erosion arises from chronic regurgitation of gastric contents into the esophagus. Complications include severe inflammation, wearing away of the lining of the esophagus [esophagitis], narrowing of the esophagus [stricture], ulceration and eventually bleeding ulcers. This condition is strongly associated with increased risk for developing cancer of the esophagus. See Barrett's Esophagus
