Wu WM, Wang XD, Sun G, Qiang LH, Yang YS. Adult asymptomatic hamartoma in the distal esophagus: a rare case. Intern Med. 2014;53(17):1945-8.
An esophageal hamartoma is a rare, benign germ-cell condition. Most hamartomas are intraluminal tumors located in the upper third of the esophagus. We herein report an unusual case of a pedunculated hamartoma that involved the lower third of the esophagus that was diagnosed incidentally during investigations for epigastric pain. The features noted on endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound/Doppler endoscopic ultrasound and computed tomography of the chest are also presented.
