Esophageal candidiasis is a rare disease in asthmatic patients using inhaled corticosteroid, but overall incidence is uncertain. While it does not cause significant morbidity, it may lead to diminished compliance to the antiasthma medication. Here we experienced a case of bronchial asthma who developed esophageal candidiasis due to overuse of budesonide. Patients requiring inhaled corticosteroids shoud be educated to prevent the local side effect such as esophageal candidiasis.
