Click 18 month male with congenital esophageal stenosis. Oral contrast given by the feeding tube and intravenous contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the chest in the axial plane revealed a diffuse, circumferential, asymmetric and discretely lateralized to the left, non enhanced parietal thickening of the distal esophagus. The lesion showed a maximum thickness of 10mm, and 2.5cm of longitudinal length, being localized 2.5cm distal to the carina while sparing the last 2 cm of the esophagus. No cleavage plane with the descendent aorta or left atrium was found, neither were hilar or mediastinal lymph nodes. The feeding tube is visualized in the esophageal lumen. (Protocol: GE Light Speed Plus 4 slice scanner, 9-28 mAs, 120kV, 5mm slice thickness, 22ml of non ionic contrast, Ultravist).
