Abstract

Vesiculobullous lesions of esophagus in patients post bone marrow transplantation may occur due to infectious agents or acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). We report the case of a patient who developed a large bulla in the esophagus as a result of chronic GVHD. Potential etiologies, diagnosis and management of bullous esophagitis are reviewed.
