The common causes of esophageal ulcers include severe reflux esophagitis, carcinomas, pill-induced esophagitis, viral diseases, caustic injury, foreign bodies and radiation injury. In rare cases, they can also be caused by Crohn's disease, Behcet's disease, syphilis and idiopathic causes. A thermal injury caused by the ingestion of hot food has not been reported to be a cause of esophageal ulcers. We report an alcoholic who developed an esophageal ulcer and odynophagia after ingesting part of an extremely hot steamed egg with a review of the few available reports regarding such injuries. We suggest that the ingestion of extremely hot food should also be considered a cause of esophageal ulcers. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2006; 32:190⁣193)
