Herpetic Esophagitis: a rare entity in immunocompetent children

Vanessa Gorito, Marta Pinheiro, Céu Espinheira, Eunice Trindade.

Abstract
Herpetic esophagitis (HE) is an uncommon condition in immunocompetent, and even less common in young children. We present the case of a 6-year-old-child with HE and food allergy. Recently the association between atopic conditions, eosinophilic, and herpetic esophagitis has been suggested. Clinical suspicion is the key to diagnosis, especially with persistent symptoms.

Key words: herpetic esophagitis, immunocompetent, paediatrics
