MedLine Citation:
PMID:  20059793     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
OBJECTIVE: We report identical twins with Zenker's diverticulum.
METHODS: Case report and literature review.
CONCLUSIONS: Geographical and racial variation in occurrence, and rare familial cases, suggest that inherited factors play a role in the pathogenesis of Zenker's diverticulum. The identical twins reported here provide further evidence supporting a genetic predisposition.
