Summary of "Recurrent Peumonia in an Infant With an Esophageal Lung."

Esophageal lung is a rare variety of communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformation with anomaolous communication between an isolated portion of respiratory tissue and esophagus. Children present in early life with recurrent cough and pneumonia. Majority of the reported cases are associated with other anomalies like tracheoesophageal fistula. We report a case of a 7-month-old girl with right sided esophageal lung who was misdiagnosed as dextrocardia with right sided pneumonitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Surgical incision of the lower esophageal sphincter near the CARDIA often used to treat ESOPHAGEAL ACHALASIA.

Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.

Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).

A human infant born before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
