ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Upper GI tract diverticula

History: Various patients aged 64 to 81 presenting with dysphagia.

Findings: Lateral Pharyngeal Diverticulum: AP single contrast esophagram reveals a small left sided outpouching arising from the hypopharynx (arrow). Zenker diverticulum. Lateral single-contrast esophagram reveals a outpouching arising from the region of the cricopharyngeus posterior to the normal esophagus. AP single-contrast esophagram reveals a outpouching arising mid-line from the region proximal to the cricopharyngeus. Epiphrenic Diverticulum: Double-contrast esophagram demonstrates a focal outpouching containing contrast materal proximal to the GE junction. Esophageal contractions are also visible. Gastric diverticulum: Double contrast UGI demonstrates a moderate sized pouch arising from the gastric fundus posteriorly. Its narrow neck arises near the GE junction. Folds extend from the stomach into the pouch. Duodenal diverticulum: Double contrast UGI reveals a outpouching arising from the second portion of the duodenum at the medial wall.

Dxhow: Imaging findings are characteristic.

No MeSH data available.
