Abstract

Progressive dysphagia of unknown etiology may still provide a diagnostic challenge despite an increase in the number and quality of investigations available. We describe a 64-year-old man who presented with progressive dysphagia and weight loss. Following a number of investigations, a diagnosis of diffuse esophageal leiomyomatosis was made and the patient was treated appropriately.
