CORTES A, CLAUDIO et al. Endoluminal excision of an esophageal fibrovascular polyp: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2010, vol.138, n.6, pp.742-745. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 47 years old woman presenting with dysphagia. A chest CAT scan and barium swallow showed an endoluminal mass that extended to four vertebrae. An endoluminal sonography localized the pediculum of the mass, that was excised endoscopically. The pathological study disclosed a fibrovascular polyp. After 18 months of follow up, the patient is asymptomatic.
