Jain M, Atherton L, Acharya V, Sengupta N, Barreca M - J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: She had no upper gastrointestinal symptoms, and therefore did not undergo preoperative oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD).During surgery, a hiatus hernia and an incidental oesophageal leiomyoma were found and treated with hernia repair and enucleation.The end outcome was unaffected.

RJV054F1: Oesophageal leiomyoma enucleated.

Mentions: After dissection of the oesophago-gastric ligament and reduction of herniated stomach into the abdomen, the lesion in the distal oesophagus was identified (Fig. 1). It was enucleated leaving the oesophageal and gastric mucosa intact. The remainder of the procedure then continued as planned and was uneventful. The patient had no concerns postoperatively and was discharged home within 24 h. The lesion was sent for histopathological analysis and a plan for follow-up was organized.Figure 1:
