Esophageal involvement with mediastinal granuloma

JAMA. 1976 Nov 15;236(20):2313-5.

Abstract

A review of 95 patients seen at the Mayo Clinic with mediastinal granuloma indicated that ten (10.5%) had esophageal involvement. The primary complaint was dysphagia. Esophageal roentgenographic features included compression, stricture, diverticulum, sinus tract formation, and tracheoesophageal fistula. An esophagogram should be included in the workup of any patient with suspected mediastinal granuloma.
