A fifty-year-old male presented with recurrent history of regurgitation of elongated soft tissue mass into the oral cavity which could be manually pushed down the throat. No other relevant history was present. Routine lab tests and chest radiograph were normal. Barium swallow revealed a large smoothly lined elongated polypoidal mass in dorsal oesophagus with expansion of the oesophageal lumen. It appeared to be arising from the oesophageal wall. On endoscopy, there was a large polypoidal pedunculated mass arising from the upper oesophageal sphincter reaching upto 27 cms. Mucosa over the mass was freely mobile and pedicle seemed to be attached to the upper oesophageal sphincter. CT displayed the widening of the oesophageal lumen with a heterogenous intraluminal mass surrounded by a rim of contrast. Areas of fatty attenuation were seen within it.
