Abstract

ABSTRACT

A description is given of the etiology and pathology of intramural esophageal diverticulosis as so far discussed in the literature. In view of the course and the clinical findings in two young patients in whom this diagnosis was established, it is suggested that intramural diverticulosis develops as a result of a developmental disorder in the autonomic nervous system.
