Congenital stenosis of the esophagus is a rare form of esophageal stenosis in adults. The main causes of congenital esophageal stenosis are the esophageal web, esophageal stricture due to tracheobronchial remnants, and idiopathic esophageal muscular hypertrophy. Recently we have experienced a 32-year-old male with dysphagia, indigestion, postprandial chest discomfort who was diagnosed as congenital esophageal stenosis due to tracheobronchial remnant. The esophagogram showed stricture of the distal esophagus with secondary proximal dilatation and endoscopic finding revealed marked stenosis on the distal esophagus with normal surrounding mucosa. The esophageal manometric finding showed decreased body peristalsis and incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. The patient was treated by surgical resection of the stenotic segment with end to end anastomosis. We report this rare case of adult type tracheobronchial remnant with analysis of various worldwide report and with brief review of literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2003;26:21⁣25)
