Abstract

Cervical osteophytes are common in the aging population. Dysphagia induced by cervical osteophytes, although uncommon, is an important and treatable cause of dysphagia that must be identified during the modified barium swallow. Previous authors have described osteophyte impingement as a cause for dysphagia. This report describes a case of this classic obstructive osteophytic dysphagia and one of combined osteophytic and neurogenic dysphagia. This is the first time that a combined mechanism is described in the literature.
