Severe Erosive Esophagitis Developing After Gastric Ulcer Formation

Takatsugu Yamamoto, Koichiro Abe, Hajime Anjiki, Taro Ishii, Yasushi Kuyama


A 90-year-old woman visited to our institute due to postprandial obstructive sensation of the esophagus. She had suffered from ischemic heart disease and diabetes mellitus, and taken low-dose aspirin for prophylaxis. She also had a history of a large ulcer located on the upper gastric body at 81 years-old. Esophago-gastric junction was normal excepting mild hiatal hernia at that time. The esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a lump of food at the lower esophagus with severe stricture and mucosal injury. Rabeprazole 20 mg per day was given, and both the inflammatory change and the symptoms improved after the prescription. A probable reason of the development is impaired gastroesophageal motility and acid regurgitation induced by gastric deformity caused after ulcer formation.
