Esophagitis (Eosinophilic Esophagitis, Candidal Esophagitis)

What is it?
Esophagitis is a general term meaning inflammation of the esophagus.  Patients with esophagitis may complain of burning chest pain, dysphagia, or globus sensation.  Esophagitis can be acute, meaning symptoms have been present for days, or chronic, meaning that symptoms have been present for weeks or more.  Esophagitis can be due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, allergies, radiation therapy, or other irritants.

How is it treated?
Esophagitis treatment depends on the underlying etiology.  Some disorders, such as viral esophagitis, are treated with supportive measures as the natural course eventually resolves.   Others, such as eosinophilic esophagitis or fungal esophagitis, require medical therapy.
