Destructive lesions of the esophagus due to Monilia have been observed in association with terminal malignancies, especially those invading the blood stream, long-term broadspectrum antibiotic therapy, and diabetes mellitus. A review of the literature and a survey of case records of The Johns Hopkins Hospital have failed to reveal an instance of monilial esophagitis occurring unrelated to one or more of the above conditions. In addition, it has not been possible to document an association of this entity with the established hemoglobinopathies.
