Abstract
Herpetic esophagitis is a rare diaease and is usually deecribed in autopsied reports. Most of the cases are reported in an immunocompromised host. We report a patient with herpetic esophagitis, following renal transplantation and longstanding steroid therapy due to rejectioh phenomenon. The patient complained of dysphagia and odynophagia. Endoscopic finding revealed multiple scattered or confluent erosions and hemorrhagie tendency, diffusely scattered linear or confluent shallow ulcer covered by a whitish exudate on a elevated margin. Microscopic finding revealed uicerated squamous epithelium of ballooning degeneration, ground glass nuclei, multinuclear giant cell and intranuclear inclusion body. The patient responded dramatically to intravenous acyclovir and leading to syniptomatic and endoscopic improvement.
