Multiple esophageal rings are a very unusual cause of dysphagia. We report a case of a 35‐yr‐old male with multiple esophageal rings and severe dysphagia, whose father had similar symptoms. Our patient underwent esophageal dilation on one occasion and is asymptomatic at 1‐yr followup. We speculate that multiple esophageal rings may he of congenital origin.
