Abstract

There have been previous reports suggesting an association between von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis and esophageal dysmotility. We report the first case of true Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis of the esophagus leading to end-stage pseudoachalasia. The diagnosis and management of this condition is discussed together with the pathogenesis and pathology of this rare entity.
