Department of Medicine and Bioregulatory Science, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University A 20-year-old man was referred to our hospital with dysphagia and chest pain. Heart disease was denied. No abnormality was observed in upper esophagogastroduodenoscopy and fluoroscopy; furthermore, no gastric acid-related symptoms were observed on combined esophageal multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH monitoring. Esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM) performed by liquid swallow revealed normal peristalsis; however, HRM performed while the patient was taking solid meals showed abnormal contraction, and the patient simultaneously complained of chest pain. Therefore, we diagnosed this case as non-cardiac chest pain due to esophageal motility disorder.
