PMID:  16500097     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The association between non-tuberculous mycobacterial pulmonary disease and achalasia, although previously documented in the respiratory literature, is not well recognised generally. We present a case of a female who presents with weight loss, cough and radiological findings of aspiration pneumonia and achalasia. A discussion of mechanisms for this association are presented.
