Esophageal strictures may result from common conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease. Dysphagia is by far the most common presenting complaint in patients with esophageal peptic stricture. Symptomatic peptic strictures are treated by dilatation via ballooning or bougienation. Vascular ring is a term given to a combination of vascular and often ligamentous structures that encircle the trachea and esophagus. Symptomatic vascular ring, also known as dysphagia lusoria, is generally treated by conservative management. However, surgery should be considered when symptoms persist regardless of the treatment. We experienced a case involving a 41-year-old man with dysphagia diagnosed with peptic stricture on upper endoscopy and concomitant vascular ring on chest CT, which proved asymptomatic.
