Esophageal fibrovascular polyp

What is an esophageal fibrovascular polyp?

An esophageal fibrovascular polyp is a rare benign lesion that arises from the cervical esophagus that usually occurs in older men. It appears as a smoothly marginated pedunculated intraluminal esophageal mass with fat, soft tissue, and/or vascular components on CT and MRI. Associated esophageal luminal distention may also be seen when large in size. It is usually surgically removed because there is a risk for polyp regurgitation and potentially lethal acute laryngeal occlusion.
