Candidiasis of esophagus
I had and EGD and upper esophageal brushing on Cytopathology report showed: Candidiasis. Yet on microscopic description with special stains failed to demonstrate fungal elements.
Questions;1- Is this diagnosis may be the cause of epigastric pain?
2- Is treatment with Fluconazole helpful?
3- I take Ranexa which may cause QT prolongation , Fluconazole may increase the possibility of QT prolongation.
In addition Fluconazole’s one side effect is stomach pain
Anyone has had similar experience and treatment?
