Abstract

An 8-year-old patient with cystic fibrosis presented with hypoalbuminemia as the main symptom of severe erosive esophagitis. Extensive evaluation failed to reveal a nutrition, pancreatic, intestinal, or renal explanation of his hypoalbuminemia. Identification and treatment of the esophagitis led to resolution of the hypoalbuminemia.
