Key Words Esophageal Leiomyoma; Endoscopic ultrasonography; Biopsy; Surgical resection
Core Tip Endoscopic ultrasonography seems necessary in a suspected leiomyoma of the esophagus. However, the performance of biopsies via fine needle aspiration is controversial. It increases the risk of complications such as bleeding, infection, and intraoperative perforations. Moreover, there is a possibility of an inconclusive biopsy due to inadequate material. Laparoscopy is the best treatment option for small tumors. Laparotomy with tumor enucleation or esophageal resection can be considered in large Leiomyomas.
