Esophageal hemangioma: diagnosis with computed tomography and radionuclide angiography

South Med J. 1983 Dec;76(12):1582-4.


Esophageal hemangioma is a benign tumor that may cause dysphagia and upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Invasive measures such as endoscopic biopsy and surgical excision have been required for diagnosis in most reported cases. We have reported a case focusing on the use of two noninvasive techniques, contrast CT and radionuclide angiography, in the diagnosis of esophageal hemangioma.
