Large pedunculated esophageal lipoma is uncommon. The presenting symptoms of esophageal lipoma are dysphagia, regurgitated mass, and persistent sensation of a lump in the throat. The most frequent location of the tumor pedicle is the upper esophageal sphincter. Here, we present the case of a 52-year-old man who had the symptoms of pharyngeal unwell and dysphagia. Panendoscopy showed a pedunculated tumor mass within the esophageal lumen with its peduncle arising from the cervical esophagus. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed that he might have anesophageal submucosal or intraluminal and pedunculated tumor mass. The tumor mass measured 25 ΄ 16 ΄ 45 mm in size. Cervical approachvia the right neck was performed for confirmation. After removal of the intraluminal mass, the patient became symptom free. Pathology showed a lipoma arising from the submucosa of the esophagus.
