Phlegmonous esophagitis is an uncommon disease characterized by purulent infection of the esophageal wall, sparing the mucosa. Bacterial infection of the eosphagus is usually presented as a superimposed infection upon a preexisting viral or fungal esophagitis and most victims are immunocompromised hosts. A case was experienced involving an acute phlegmonous esophagitis in an 21-year-old man who was immunologically normal and whose main symptoms were epigastric pain and fever for one day. Esophagographic examination revealed a large ulceration of the eosphagus with exudation, and submucosal lesions. Due to its rarity, this case is herein reported with a review of the corresponding literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;20:119-122)
