Abstract

Achalasia is an uncommon pediatric disease. An association with a benign esophageal stenosis is even rarer. We report this interesting case of a 9-year-old with concomitant achalasia and benign esophageal stenosis. Diagnosis was based on radiologic, endoscopic, and operative findings. The patient was successfully treated with laparoscopic Heller's esophagocardiomyotomy and Watson's fundoplication. Details of this unique case and operative technique are highlighted.
