Mid-esophageal ulceration and candidiasis-associated distal esophagitis as two distinct clinical patterns of tetracycline or doxycycline-induced esophageal injury



Mid-esophageal ulceration and candidiasis-associated distal esophagitis as two distinct clinical patterns of tetracycline or doxycycline-induced esophageal injury



Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology 38(6): 484-489



Background: Tetracyclines may cause oesophageal injury. Goals: The aims of this study are to describe 2 distinct clinical patterns of oesophageal injury induced by tetracycline or its derivate doxycycline and to compare these patterns with respect to demographic, endoscopic, and clinical characteristics of the patients. Study: Forty-eight patients with the diagnosis of doxycycline- or tetracycline-induced oesophageal injury by endoscopy were analysed retrospectively.
