Esophageal diverticula are protrusions of the esophageal wall that remain in continuity with the lumen. Although they can occur anywhere along the esophagus, there are three main anatomic categories: pharyngoesophageal, midesophageal and epiphrenic.

Other acquired esophageal diverticula have been reported in the literature in pediatric patients following prolonged retained esophageal foreign body, after excision of a foregut duplication cyst, as a delayed postoperative complication following repair of esophageal atresia and in the neonatal period with iatrogenic injury following orogastric or nasogastric tube insertion [1][2][3][4][5][6].
