Corrosive Esophagitis in Children: Assessment by the Esophagogram

Corrosive Esophagitis in Children: Assessment by the Esophagogram Abstract • The roentgenograms of 27 children aged 10 months to 13 years with endoscopically confirmed corrosive esophagitis were reviewed. The initial barium esophagogram showed 19 to have strictures. The length and irregularity of the strictures were recorded and related to the severity of the illness and the treatment required. In the remaining eight patients, the initial study gave normal results, but two were later shown to have developed strictures. (Am J Dis Child 132:596-599, 1978) References 1.
