ABSTRACT: A 4-year old boy presented with inability to swallow both solids and liquids 3 weeks following ingestion of corrosive chemical. The whole of the thoracic esophagus had an impassable stricture. A gastric substitution was done to replace the thoracic esophagus. The patient developed a stricture at the cerviogastric anastomosis 1 month after surgery. This was successfully treated by stricturoplasty using buccal mucosal graft.
