Answer

Esophagitis is commonly seen in adults and is uncommon in childhood. [25, 26] The most common type of esophagitis is that associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) (ie, reflux esophagitis). Candida esophagitis is the most common type of infectious esophagitis. Esophageal reflux symptoms occur monthly in 33%-44% of the general population; as many as 7%-10% of people have daily symptoms.
