Abstract

Submucosal hemorrhage of the esophagus is an uncommon complication of endoscopy. It has a characteristic appearance and is most likely to occur in patients with cervical osteophytes. It is important to recognize the lesion so that unnecessary biopsies are not taken and other investigations are limited.
