A 35-year-old man with idiopathic hypoparathyroidism and moniliasis developed progressive dysphagia and weight loss. Diagnostic studies established the presence of esophageal moniliasis. Therapy with a viscous suspension of nystatin resulted in rapid clinical improvement; prolonged administration of the drug was associated with progressive widening of a narrowed segment of esophagus and complete disappearance of dysphagia. The chemotherapy of esophageal moniliasis is discussed in the light of current knowledge of the pharmacological action of nystatin.
