Abstract

Primary cricopharyngeal achalasia is a rare cause of dysphagia in the pediatric population. In a review of the literature, only 11 well-documented cases were discovered. We report the case of a newborn with cricopharyngeal achalasia who was successfully treated with a myotomy of the upper esophageal sphincter. A review of the literature is presented and treatment options are discussed.
