We report a 13-year-old boy with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa who had dysphagia due to esophageal stenosis. A balloon dilation was successfully performed under flexible endoscopic and fluoroscopic control. The early and long-term follow-up was characterized by the disappearance of dysphagia, weight gain, and improvement of his skin lesions.
