Radiographic identification of an abnormal lesion in the esophagus routinely occurs during workup of patients with symptomatic dysphagia. Leiomyoma is the most common benign finding; however, plexiform leiomyoma, a distinctive but rare variant, follows an unusual pattern of growth which can be a challenging surgical resection. A review of indexed literature identified a single previous report. We contribute a second case of plexiform leiomyoma with a discussion of the clinical, radiographic, and pathologic characteristics, as well as the differential diagnosis for plexiform lesions.
