Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A child with congenital esophageal stenosis (CES) demonstrates the need for accuracy in the diagnosis and management of this rare problem. Other etiologies of dysphagia must be looked into, but when the expected results are not realized CES should be considered. A range of diagnoses and diagnostic studies may help to get children with dysphagia the treatment that they need to resolve their symptoms.
