A 27-year-old male teacher presented with a 2-year history of intermittent dysphagia for solids, which occurred about once every three meals. There was no regurgitation, bolus obstruction, odynophagia, or chest pain. His weight was stable and there was no history of melaena or haematemesis. He had reflux, which caused intermittent heartburn, but symptoms were controlled with omeprazole. This had not made any difference to the dysphagia.
