In this report, we presented a case with esophageal candidiasis. A 35-year-old woman was admitted our hospital because of dysphagia and substernal burning pain on swallowing. Endoscopy revealed discrete white mucosal patches on the mucosa of the esophagus and hiatal hernia. Diagnosis was confirmed by the demonstration of Candida pseudohyphae and
yeasts in smears of brushings. Fluconazole (200 mg/day) was given by the oral route to the patient who are afebrile and not suspected of having disseminated candidiasis. In conclusion,
esophageal candidiasis should always be kept in mind fort the cause of dysphagia and odinophagia in the patients with gastroesophageal reflux esophagitis.
