A case of congenital suprabulbar paresis is reported. The associated severe dysphagia which presented soon after birth was shown by radiographic and cineradiographic studies to be due to cricopharyngeal achalasia. During four years of follow-up a clear tendency to spontaneous improvement was seen. It is therefore suggested that the condition may have a favorable outcome without resorting to surgical intervention.
