Abstract

Colchicine, a medication commonly used to treat gout, interferes with the cell cycle and can injure rapidly reproducing cells, including proliferative cells in gastrointestinal mucosa, primarily in the small bowl. Esophageal injury is rarely reported, and when reported is typically mild. A case is reported of severe injury to esophageal mucosa secondary to colchicine.
