Pill induced esophagitis mnemonic

Pill induced esophagitis is caused by a pill! :D

Causes of pill induced esophagitis mnemonic: A PILL.

Antibiotics like tetracycline, clindamycin

Potassium chloride
Less water
Lying down immediately

Interesting anatomy correlation:
The most common sites of injury are the proximal esophagus near the compression from the aortic arch and the distal esophagus in patients with left atrial enlargement.

The typical endoscopic appearance of pill-induced esophageal injury is a discrete ulcer with relatively normal surrounding mucosa.

That's all!
