Abstract

The esophageal ulcer us a common complication in people affected by the acquired human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), especially in the final stages and in patients who develop an acute retroviral syndrome. Although, it can be caused by various infectious agents, such as species of candida, cytomegalovirus (CMV) and herpes simplex virus (HSV), no aetiological agent is successfully identified in a large proportion of patients and it is classified as idiopathic. We report the case of an idiopathic esophageal ulcer associated with the initial diagnosis of HIV-1.
