More than 50 years ago, two investigators described a rare case of multiple esophageal diverticula, which they named esophageal intramural pseudodiverticulosis (EIPD). To this day, the pathogenesis of this condition remains obscure. Several coexisting conditions, such as strictures, esophageal dysmotility, or infection, require medical treatment. We present two typical cases of EIPD and one case of a rare single esophageal intramural diverticulum.
