Background. Although the incidence of caustic ingestion is declining, the management of caustic esophageal strictures remains a challenge. Although many agents have been tried experimentally to treat strictures, few have gained clinical application. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of mitomycin C (MMC), which inhibits fibroblastic proliferation in treating delayed caustic esophageal strictures.
