34 Possible Causes for Ulcerations in Esophagoscopy

  • Esophageal Crohn's Disease

    An esophagoscopy revealed large ulcers in the esophagus, and a colonoscopy revealed a longitudinal ulcer in the terminal ileum.[] Although his symptoms were initially resolved, the ulcers did not improve and he was readmitted to hospital 3 months later for progressive heartburn.[]

  • Esophageal Ulcer

    Intraoperative flexible esophagoscopy revealed an active ulcer bleeding on the right anterior quadrant in the lower esophagus.[]

  • Systemic Candidiasis

    Two patients on total parenteral nutrition who developed endophthalmitis secondary to Candida albicans are described. Candidal endophthalmitis as a manifestation of systemic candidiasis is discussed and its early diagnosis by bedside fundal examination in patients at risk is stressed.[]

  • Generalized Herpes Simplex

    Int J STD AIDS. 2013 May;24(5):375-82. doi: 10.1177/0956462412472816. Epub 2013 Jun 14. Author information 1 Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine, University of Cape Town, Anzio Road, Observatory 7700, South Africa. Abstract Little is known as to why some populations develop generalized[…][]

  • Herpes Simplex Infection

    A patient had acute myeloblastic leukemia and extensive progressive cutaneous herpes simplex virus infection. Complete and rapid healing of skin lesions with remission of the leukemia occurred during 15 days of therapy with human leukocyte interferon and minimal doses of cytarabine hydrochloride. Pharmacokinetic[…][]

  • Candida Esophagitis

    Candida oesophagitis (CO) is scarce among immunocompetent patients. This study aimed at evaluating predisposing factors, clinical symptoms and endoscopic findings in this group. We retrospectively reviewed 55 patients diagnosed as CO endoscopically (whitish plaques) and cytologically (fungal mycelia on brush cytology).[…][]

  • Radiation Esophagitis

    Radiat Oncol. 2018 Jul 17;13(1):130. doi: 10.1186/s13014-018-1073-3.

  • Herpes Esophagitis

    Barium swallow was positive in 8 of 20 patients tested, whereas esophagoscopy showed ulcers in 17 of the 20 cases.[] Specimens obtained during esophagoscopy revealed viral inclusions in 13 of the 20 patients tested, and viral cultures were positive in 11 of the 15 patients tested.[]

  • Cytomegalovirus

    Abstract Aging in humans is associated with increased infections and the reduced proliferative capacity of T cells, part of the more global phenomenon termed immune senescence. The etiology of immune senescence is unknown but the accumulation of virus-specific memory T cells may be a contributory factor. We have[…][]

  • Esophageal Burn

    Management is guided by early flexible esophagoscopy to grade the degree of injury, usually within 24 hours of injury, after the patient has been stabilized.[] First-degree burn is characterized by hyperemia and edema; second-degree burn, by ulceration; and third-degree burn, by massive edema often with eschar formation with or without[] […] liquid alkali passes more quickly, causing greater esophageal and gastric injury. 4, 5 The three phases of chemical injury are (1) inflammation/necrosis, (2) sloughing and ulceration[]
