We present a case of primary esophageal tuberculosis presenting as solitary submucosal mass in cervical esophagus with clinical features of dysphagia, thus mimicking a submucosal leiomyoma on imaging in a 39 year old lady. Excision of this mass revealed features suggestive of tuberculosis on histopathology.
