Abstract

We herein present the case of a 44-year-old male who was successfully treated with pharyngo-laryngo-esophagectomy for severe corrosive esophagitis associated with pharyngitis. He accidentally ingested an unidentified liquid and subsequently developed esophagitis and progressive pharyngolaryngitis. Since he also developed dyspnea, he initially underwent a tracheotomy at an emergency hospital. Afterward, dysphagia due to hypopharingoesophageal stricture gradually developed, and the patient was referred to our hospital. Therefore, under laparotomy, a feeding tube was inserted into the jejunostomy, and the gastroendoscope inserted via the anterior gastric wall revealed that the gastric mucosa along the greater curvature was intact. Based on this information, it was concluded that the patient could undergo reconstruction with a gastric tube following pharyngo-laryngo-esophagectomy, and this was successfully accomplished 3 months later.
