Esophageal squamous papilloma
The Egyptian Journal of Internal Medicine volume 27, pages 40–41 (2015)
Squamous papilloma of the esophagus is a rare benign tumor with less than 200 cases reported in the literature. The etiology and pathogenesis appear to be related to an inflammatory–reparatory type, such as chronic gastroesophageal reflux, esophagitis, trauma, chemical irritants, and viruses. We present the case of a young female patient with esophageal squamous papilloma discovered accidently during screening upper gastrointestinal endoscopy.
