Abstract

Summary: We present an unusual case of Candida albicans costochondritis after a complicated Ivor Lewis esophagectomy. This case exhibits that pain, erythema, and swelling over the costal cartilages should alert the possibility of infective costochondritis, especially in a postoperative patient. If a fungal agent is identified, aggressive surgical debridement and early commencement of antifungal therapy are likely determinants for a satisfactory outcome.
