    Leiomyoma is the most common benign tumor of the esophagus, which accounts for 4% of all esophageal tumors. Leiomyoma should be removed when diagnosed, even if it is asymptomatic, because malignancy cannot be excluded and symptoms are likely to develop if treatment is delayed. We report a giant...
