Abstract

Nausea and vomiting significantly affect quality of life. We report a case of esophagus candidiasis incidentally discovered in an elderly frail female, who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy for severe nausea and vomiting symptoms. After the treatment for esophageal candidiasis, immediately, she relieved the symptoms of nausea and vomiting, and increased appetite gradually.
