Abstract

A five month female was referred complaining of intermittent vomiting with protrusion of a sausage-like mass through the oral cavity. Esophageal endoscopy and esophagogram revealed a mass in the upper esophagus, which was diagnosed as a fibrovascular polyp. Under general anesthesia, the mass was grasped through the oral cavity with a forcep and ligated and excised at the base, where a stump arose from the posterior wall of the cervical esophagus. The pathology was confirmed as a fibrovascular polyp, which is a rare benign esophageal lesion occurring mostly in adult males, and has not been reported in infancy.
