Abstract

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 be of congenital origin.
