fig0015: Multinodular cystic mass after surgical removal.

Mentions: Surgical exploration of the esophagus revealed a multilobular cystic lesion located on the anterior lateral cervical esophagus. The mass was freed from the esophageal adventitia without difficulty. There was no sign of a connection to the esophageal lumen indicating esophageal perforation. Fig. 2. A lymph node over the anterior aspect of the cervical esophagus was also removed. The thyroid appeared normal. No foreign body was located. After removing the mass, the esophagus was clamped distally and contrast was introduced intraoperatively. There was no extravasation from the esophagus under fluoroscopy. Fig. 3. The day after surgery, she received another barium swallow study before discharge with no extravasation identified. Fig. 4.
