A 43‐year‐old woman was admitted to our emergency department with dysphagia and chest pain that developed soon after swallowing a fish bone. Her medical history was unremarkable as was the physical examination, ECG and chest x ray. She was admitted and treatment with a proton pump inhibitor commenced. Upper endoscopy was arranged to evaluate her dysphagia after a sufficient period of fasting. A purplish bulging mass was found over the middle to lower third of the oesophagus (fig 11).). Chest CT scan was subsequently performed to confirm the diagnosis ((figsfigs 2 and 33).
What is the diagnosis?
