B. Viral Esophagitis Figure 5-2 Candida esophagitis with a shaggy esophagus. There are innumerable plaques and pseudomembranes in the esophagus, producing a grossly irregular or shaggy contour due to the trapping of barium between these lesions. This patient had AIDS. Definition The herpes simplex virus type 1 is a frequent cause of infectious esophagitis, occurring mainly in immunosuppressed patients. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) also cause infectious esophagitis in patients with AIDS.
Other patients may develop secondary achalasia because of tumor involving the vagus nerve, dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve, or brain stem. Still other patients have tumors that secrete a vasoactive substance, producing a paraneoplastic syndrome that mimics achalasia. Imaging Features Primary achalasia is characterized on barium studies by a dilated, flaccid esophagus with absent primary peristalsis and tapered, beaklike narrowing of the distal esophagus at or directly adjacent to the gastroesophageal junction due to incomplete opening of the LES (Figure 3-1).
Many patients with secondary achalasia have tumor that directly infiltrates the gastroesophageal junction, destroying the ganglion cells in this region. In North America, as many as 75% of patients with secondary achalasia are found to have a carcinoma of the cardia or fundus as the cause of this condition. Carcinoma of the lung, breast, and pancreas and other malignant tumors can also metastasize to the gastroesophageal junction, causing secondary achalasia. Other patients may develop secondary achalasia because of tumor involving the vagus nerve, dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve, or brain stem.
