Abstract : Isolated esophagitis is very rare in newborn infants at birth, although it may occur a few days or weeks later but is gener-ally associated with gastritis or gastroesophageal reflux, infections or trauma. Respiratory distress is a very unusual clini-cal feature of esophagitis. We hereby report two newborns who presented with symptoms of respiratory distress at birth and had isolated erosive esophagitis. Symptoms resolved with treatment of esophagitis.
