The Authors report a case of cervical esophageal perforation from foreign body. Comparing their experience with data from literature, they point out the diagnostic importance of both X-ray studies, in order to demonstrate the site of the lesion, and CT scans, to have accurate information on perilesional infective complications (abscesses). Early surgical treatment, with primary closure of perforation and adequate drainage, associated with antibiotics and enteral or total parenteral nutrition, allows good results in most cases.

Abstract

The Authors report a case of cervical esophageal perforation from foreign body. Comparing their experience with data from literature, they point out the diagnostic importance of both X-ray studies, in order to demonstrate the site of the lesion, and CT scans, to have accurate information on perilesional infective complications (abscesses). Early surgical treatment, with primary closure of perforation and adequate drainage, associated with antibiotics and enteral or total parenteral nutrition, allows good results in most cases.
