Giant oesophageal fibrovascular polyp (2005:12b)
- 90 Downloads
The authors report a case of a giant fibrovascular polyp of the oesophagus in which CT with multiplanar reformatting gave valuable information as to both location of the lesion as well as size and anatomical attachment proximally, which was pivotal in directing surgery. It was instructive in this case that initial endoscopy was reported to be normal. The lesion was well demonstrated by barium swallow.
