Esophageal lipomas are uncommon benign tumors. The main symptom of this type of tumor is dysphagia due to esophageal obstruction. The diagnostic studies of choice are endoscopy, radiological investigation with contrast administration, computed tomography, and echoendoscopy. We present an unusual case of giant pediculated esophageal lipoma which manifested clinically with dysphagia. Management was surgical.
