Case Summary

An elderly patient presented to the emergency room with worsening dysphagia to solids, neck pain, retrosternal discomfort, and 30-lb weight loss in the previous three months. The patient had a remote history of a transcervical esophageal polyp resection. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) performed 15 years later revealed a recurrent, 20 cm esophageal polyp. The polyp was not removed at that time. The patient reported coughing up the polyp and biting it several years earlier.
