pathology error?

I had a recent upper endoscopy and am confused about the pathology results.
Shouldn't  "colonic mucosa" and "crypt architecture" be in the colon and not in my esophageal biopsy?

"Microscopic Examination:
Sections show colonic mucosa with normal crypt architecture and lamina propria mononuclear cell population.  No crypt abscesses, granulomas, ischemic injury, increased intraepithelial lymphocytosis, thickened subepithelial basement membrane, or adenomatous changes are noted."

Something is very wrong with this report. This is a report that is talking about the colon - call your doc and get things cleared up.
