Abstract

It is well known that cytomegalovirus esophagitis occurs in immunosuppressed patients. However, few reports have described cytomegalovirus esophagitis occurring during chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer. We report two cases of patients with cytomegalovirus esophagitis that developed during chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer. Cytomegalovirus esophagitis was diagnosed based on the presence of intranuclear inclusions in tumor biopsy specimens. The two Japanese patients presented with anorexia and fever, which improved with anti-cytomegalovirus treatment, and intranuclear inclusions were no longer seen in the specimens. The possibility of cytomegalovirus esophagitis must be kept in mind for patients with esophageal cancer presenting with prolonged fever or digestive symptoms while receiving chemoradiotherapy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 June 2018.
All research outputs
#10,424,256
of 13,073,426 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#1,223
of 2,204 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#186,976
of 265,578 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,073,426 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,204 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,578 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
