Megaesophagus in an asthmatic patient and beta2 stimulant treatment by inhalation

Megaesophagus in an asthmatic patient and beta2 stimulant treatment by inhalation

Biomedicine & PharmacoTherapy 58(3): 194-195

Megaesophagus is a severe esophageal malformation. We report a case of megaesophagus in an asthmatic patient affected by congenital non-haemolytic anaemia and undergoing beta(2) Stimulant treatment by inhalation. Our case could be due to chronic beta(2) receptor stimulation with imbalance of alpha and beta receptor, without any implication of favism. (C) 2004 Elsevier SAS.
