Acute Herpetic Esophagitis -a Case Report-

We report a case of acute herpetic esophagitis in a 33 year old man who was presumed to be immuno-compromised following prolonged steroid and cyclosporin treatment for acute rejection of a transplanted kidney. Symptoms frequently related to esophageal herpes have been described as odynophagia and abrupt onset of chest pain in 50 to 60 of patients, whereas no specific symtoms were presented in 26 of patients19).
