Esophageal hemangioma is an extremely rare tumor. We report a case of a 39-year-old man who was found to have an hemangioma which extended from the hypopharynx to the upper thoracic esophagus revealed by endoscopic examination. Computed tomography (CT) images, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and angiography were useful in the diagnosis. He was successfully treated by fulguration using potassium titanyl phosphate/yttrium aluminum garnet (KTP/YAG laser) four times and no recurrence has been seen. This patient has since been followed up carefully and additional fulguration will be performed if necessary. KTP/YAG laser is useful for the treatment of a large hemangioma as a less invasive method.
