Barrett's Esophagus in teen agers.

  My 15 yr.old son just diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus. Has undergone endoscopy and biopsy and is currently taking 20 mg prilosec 2x a day.  Am trying to locate info on this problem in children, treatments, recommendations for frequency of follow endoscopy's etc.  Dr. is planning a PH study after 6-8 weeks on meds. to determine if helpful. If acid levels are reduced what are possiblities of this turning malignant.  any info will be helpful because Dr. is unfamiliar with this problem in teenagers.
