There are few reports of the endoscopic and histological features of ectopic sebaceous glands in the esophagus. Recently we observed a 2 mm whitish flat elevated nodule in the lower esophagus. A biopsy was taken under the clinical impression of a papilloma or ulcer scar. Histology revealed normal esophageal mucosa with mature ectopic sebaceous glands located in the lamina propria with no visible hair follicles. We report this case with a brief review of the literature related to the histological findings and histogenesis of esophageal ectopic sebaceous glands.
