We described for the first time the contrast enhancement of a giant fibrovascular esophageal polyp using ultrasound contrast agent, Sonovue® (Bracco, Milan, Italy) during echoendoscopy. Fine Doppler was unsuccessful in showing vascularization due to the mobile characteristic of the tumor. In contrast, via Sonovue® , tissue microcirculation was highlighted inside the entire head of the polyp, leading to better appreciate the risk of bleeding related to its resection. In a second part, we showed the feasibility of classic polypectomy for this giant polyp (5×5 cm) without complication and results of control endoscopy at 3 months. The present case is summarized in a video.
