Esophagitis due to cytomegalovirus (CMV) has mostly been described in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Distal and hemorrhagic ulcerations are characteristic. A CMA esophagitis can, however, also occur in patients with no human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection as a complication of immunosuppressive therapy. In the case example presented here the disease was due to an excessive dosage of prednisolone medication over a period of many years.
