European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine


The European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine is an official journal of the European Federation of Internal Medicine (EFIM). The journal wants to promote the practice of internal medicine in Europe. Its aim is to provide a forum to internal medicine doctors.
EJCRIM welcomes papers describing unusual or complex cases and case series that an internist may encounter in everyday practice. Case series are also welcomed as long as they demonstrate the appropiateness of a therapeutical approach or unusual manifestation of a disease.
The journal would also consider brief reasoned reports of issues relevant to the practice of Internal Medicine, as well as Abstracts submitted to scientific meetings of European societies of Internal Medicine.

EJCRIM is peer-reviewed with single-blind review and freely accessible to all.

Candida infection of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is rare in the immunocompetent individual. In immunocompromised patients, it frequently involves the oesophagus, but extra-oesophageal involvement is uncommon. We report a case of primary and isolated gastroduodenal candidiasis. Upper GI endoscopy with biopsy of gastric mucosa was crucial for making the diagnosis. The patient showed transient improvement after therapy with fluconazole.
