Figure 1: (a) Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) chest axial image at the level of carina showing a homogenous large soft tissue mass displacing the esophagus to right. Note the airway compression by the mass. (b) Barium swallow image shows displaced thoracic esophagus to right with suggestion of a large intraluminal mass. (c) Resected specimen, advential aspect, shows a large lesion occupying the upper and mid part of the esophagus. Note the proximal and distal esophagus is normal. (d) Low power photomicrograph of the mass showing the stretched out overlying esophageal mucosa and the well-defined smooth muscle tumor (hematoxylin and eosin (H and E), ×140)
