ABSTRACT
A case of esophageal pseudotumor most likely due to a submucosal hematoma and occurring as a complication of esophageal variceal sclerotherapy is described. Resolution occurred spontaneously and did not lead to residual complications such as strictures or dysmotility. Continued, uncomplicated chronic sclerotherapy resulting in variceal obliteration was possible after the lesion resolved.
