This case report describes a 26-year-old patient referred to our department for the purpose of differential dia­gnosis of dysphagia. The patient underwent an endoscopic examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract with the finding of external compression of the lower third of the esophagus. Subsequently, a contrast CT examination was performed with the finding of two cystic tumors of the posterior mediastinum. Additionally, endoscopic ultrasonography was performed at our department, with a finding of two duplicating esophageal cysts.
