Figure 7-13 A, An esophageal leiomyoma. A barium esophagram shows an extraluminal mass (arrows), with no mucosal involvement. B, The extraluminal mass at esophagoscopy. C, On esophageal ultrasound, a hypoechoic tumor (T) can be seen arising from the fourth ultrasound layer (arrows). This intramural mass is confined to this layer with no invasion of adjacent layers.

Figure 7-15 Foregut cyst. A, There is no extrinsic esophageal compression at esophagoscopy. B, On esophageal ultrasound, the cyst has two components, one anechoic (representing fluid) and the other hyper echoic (representing proteinaceous material). The cyst lies adjacent to the trachea and esophagus.
