Tracheal diverticulum is a rarely encountered entity which is frequently an incidental finding in the postmortem examination, reported in 1% of patients in an autopsy series. Most cases are asymptomatic, but when symptoms are present they usually have airway symptoms with cough or recurrent respiratory infection. We herein report a case of a tracheal diverticulum, which had cervical dysphagia and sensation of friction.
