Özet

Dysphagia secondary to congenital cricopharyngeal achalasia (CCA) is a rare condition in pediatric patients. We report a case of CCA in a 10-month-old boy presented with dysphagia, choking and nasal reflux. The diagnosis was made by barium studies. The patient was successfully treated by cricopharyngeal myotomy.
