Abstract

Isolated esophageal segments following esophageal bypass surgery may develop into mucus-filled dilatations (mucoceles) of the esophagus. They usually remain small and asymptomatic. This report describes a patient who developed a symptomatic esophageal mucocele 1 year after surgical exclusion of the thoracic esophagus for Boerhaave's syndrome.
