Large pedunculated esophageal leiomyomas are rarely encountered in clinical practice and often can be missed or misdiagnosed. They frequently present with progressive dysphagia, regurgitant mass or lump in throat. Most arise from muscularis mucosa of distal two-thirds of the esophagus and are slow growing with minimal malignant change. Herein, we report a previously asymptomatic 70-year-old woman presenting with a 12 cm x 5 cm mass with rounded end protruding out of the mouth after a severe bout of cough. The mass was resected, and endoscopy done after 2 weeks. Histopathology confirmed diagnosis of Esophageal Leiomyoma.
