Abstract

A 59-year-old woman presented with pharyngeal discomfort and dysphagia starting the previous day. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a longitudinal reddish area and hematoma mainly on the left wall of the esophagus. On the previous day, she had felt a piece of meat sticking in her throat while eating; she therefore rapidly gulped down some hot coffee to hasten the passage of the meat. Based on the history, we diagnosed her endoscopic findings as esophageal hematoma and thermal injury associated with hot coffee. We herein describe a case of an acute esophageal hematoma and thermal injury and the clinical course following endoscopy.
