Oesophageal intramural pseudodiverticulosis: a rare endoscopic finding
Oesophageal intramural pseudodiverticulosis is an uncommon condition, characterized by multiple small rounded cavities seen in the oesophageal wall during Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy. It is often associated with gastro-oesophageal
reflux disease, achalasia, oesophageal candidiasis and diabetes mellitus. We report a 40 year old Nigerian man who presented with recurrent dysphagia and endoscopic findings typical of oesophageal intramural pseudodiverticulosis.
The patient was managed medically with resolution of the dysphagia. This report highlights the occurrence of this rare and benign cause of dysphagia in Nigeria.
