Acute oesophageal symptoms.
Clin Med. 2015 Oct 5;15(5):477-81
Authors: Hossain SN, de Caestecker J
Acute oesophageal symptoms include acute dysphagia or food bolus impaction (most commonly due to strictures, Schatzki ring and eosinophilic oesophagitis), acute chest pain with odynophagia due to oesophageal infections, motility disorders and acute oesophageal rupture (of which oesophageal intramural haematoma is a subtype). Acute full thickness oesophageal rupture carries a high mortality if not recognised early; the clinical features and conditions with which this may be confused are presented and discussed.
