A 28-year-old female complaining of epigastric discomfort was informed to have an esophageal mass at her local hospital and came to our hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Chest CT showed a 20 mm × 4 mm lesion with adipose density similar to cutaneous fat tissue in the upper esophageal lumen. Subsequent endoscopy demonstrated a fleshy, sausage like elongated lesion that originated immediately inferior to the piriform recess and extended into the distal esophagus. The surface of lesion appeared blue after regurgitating to the oral cavity when the patient vomited. Endoscopist explained the difficulties and risks about endoscopic sub-mucosal resection owing to the upper location of the neoplastic stalk, and the patient’s relatives declined endoscopic management and turned to surgery. A complete removal of the mass was achieved via a trans-cervical approach with the esophagotomy. Histopathological outcome was consistent with esophageal hamartoma.
