Nasogastric tube insertion is a routine clinical procedure for nutritional support, gastric aspiration and decompression. Although it is generally a safe procedure, complication rates range from 0.3∼8%. Submucosal esophageal dissection is a rare disorder caused by mucosal tearing and bleeding between the mucosal and muscular layers of the esophagus, leading to their separation. We report a case of submucosal esophageal dissection secondary to the accidental iatrogenic intramural insertion of a nasogastric tube. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;39: 296-299)
