Esophageal candidiasis presents with a range of clinical findings and is rarely found among immunocompetent patient without predisposing factors. Between 20-50% of patient may be asymptomatic. One of predisposing factor of candidiasis is immunocompromised condition due to malignancy. Dysphagia is the most frequently presented feature of esophageal carcinoma. We demonstrated a case of esophageal candidiasis as one of early clinical presentation in patient with esophageal carcinoma.
