Abstract:
Infections of the oesophagus are rare and seen mostly in immunocompromised children. Common organisms include Herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus as well as Candida. Diagnosis of oesophageal Candidiasis involves identification of Candida species in oesophageal brushing or oesophageal biopsy 1 . Immunodeficiency may result not only from use of chemotherapy, chronic illness or congenital immunodeficiency, but also from prolonged use of steroids, even inhaled.
