One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Inflammation of the oesophagus.
- ‘If heartburn goes on long enough, it can lead to esophagitis (an inflamed lining of the esophagus).’
- ‘All patients underwent endoscopy before randomization, and those with severe esophagitis, peptic ulcer disease, Barrett's esophagus or other serious conditions were excluded from the study.’
- ‘Complications seen in a hiatal hernia include aspiration pneumonia and peptic esophagitis with stricture.’
- ‘Patients with predominant epigastric pain without peptic ulcer disease or oesophagitis have functional dyspepsia.’
- ‘Side effects include damage to surrounding organs, which can lead to significant morbidity from esophagitis and pneumonitis.’
- ‘Failure of this mechanism is one cause of the sensation known as heartburn, and if persistent leads to chronic inflammation: oesophagitis.’
- ‘All trials used validated dyspepsia questionnaires and excluded patients with confirmed peptic ulcer disease or oesophagitis before enrolment.’
- ‘The second group was recruited for histologic comparison and consisted of patients undergoing endoscopy for dyspepsia who had no evidence of esophagitis, ulcer disease or cancer.’
- ‘The close association between hiatus hernia and the symptoms of reflux esophagitis, observed long ago, led to the belief that such hernias cause reflux.’
- ‘Symptoms and signs of purging habits include reflux esophagitis, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding.’
