Abstract

 

Dysphagia in patients undergoing cancer treatment is often associated with conditions such as reflux esophagitis, infectious esophagitis, malignant infiltration, or as a consequence of radiation therapy, the occurrence of an acute esophageal stricture resulting from chemotherapy is exceedingly rare. In this report, we present a distinctive case of an isolated chemotherapy-induced esophageal stricture in a patient who was undergoing treatment for metastatic osteosarcoma. Notably, this patient had no previous history of gastroesophageal reflux disease, caustic ingestion, or other risk factors commonly linked to the development of esophageal strictures.

Keywords: Post chemotherapy, oesophgaeal stricture, dysphagia, chemotherapy
