A seventeen years old lioness with history of emaciation, anorexia and respiratory distress since several days, finally the animal was died suddenly. On postmortem examination the carcass was very poor in appearance and slight swelling was noticed at neck region. The cervical part of esophagus was enlarged nearly 3-4 times than normal. Histopathologically, esophagus revealed pink stained edema fluid, neutrophils and mononuclear cells infiltration and fibroblast proliferation was noticed in mucosa and sub mucosa. The tunica muscularis was hypertrophied. The present case etiology was unknown. Hence this case was confirmed as an idiopathic megaesophagus in lioness.
