Abstract

Esophageal injuries caused by oral medications have recently been recognized as aniatrogenic entity. This pathogenesis is due to the retention in the esophagus of drugs with caustic properties. The main predisposing factor is the practice of taking oral drugs with a small quantity of water and/or in a recumbent position. Elderly subjects and patients with pre-existing esophageal disorders are at higher risk, so that fluid formulations or different routes of drug administration are strongly recommended. More widespread education as to the correct use of drugs and a better drug formulation are necessary for effective prevention.
