PMID:  7424877     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient who, eight years prior, had a Heller operation for achalasia developed hypertrophic osteoarthropathy possibly secondary to a leiomyoma of the esophagus with sarcomatous changes. No local invasion or metastases were found. Total esophagectomy completely cured the esophageal symptoms and relieved the swelling and pain of her knees and other joints. This case illustrates the hypertrophic osteoarthropathy syndrome, its marked diagnostic significance and its occurrence secondary to an esophageal leiomyoma and leiomyosarcoma.
