Upper endoscopy revealed continuous "cobblestoning" and linear ulcers of his esophageal mucosa (figure 1) in the distal 20-cm segment, and a normal stomach and duodenum.
Follow-up strobovideolaryngoscopy 2 months later revealed a substantial decrease in the size of the mass as well as a diminution of the arytenoid erythema and edema and in the extent of the posterior cobblestoning (figure 2).
The patient also exhibited mild erythema and edema of the arytenoids and mild posterior laryngeal cobblestoning, which was suggestive of laryngopharyngeal reflux.
