Parkman, H P Esophagitis and gastroduodenal disorders associated with diabetic gastroparesis. Archives of internal medicine 1987 vol:147 iss:8 pg:1477 -1480

Of the three with Candida esophagitis two had mild symptoms of dysphagia and odynophagia, however this was overshadowed by the main complaint of nausea and vomiting. Those with peptic or Candida esophagitis, gastric ulcers, and duodenal erosions did not have usual symptoms, such as dysphagia, odynophagia, a burning component to their pain, or relief of pain with food.
