An endoscopy showed a large, deep ulcer in the lower third of the esophagus.[] A small percentage of these lesions 1 are congenital, but most occur as complications of the sliding type of esophageal hiatal hernia or of operations upon the gastric cardia[] Thereafter, swallowing difficulties appeared, and endoscopy revealed severe esophageal stenosis and a deep ulcer.[]

  • Nutcracker Esophagus

    Dysphagia of solid or liquid food suggests the presence of a neuromuscular disorder; however, mechanical obstruction by a structural problem is suggested in case of only solid[] No hiatal hernia was noticed and gastric mucosa appeared normal. Esophageal and gastric biopsies were non-specific.[] The most common type of esophageal food-related foreign body is the meat bolus, which is frequently associated with underlying esophageal stenosis.[]
