Abstract

Pseudodiverticulum of the hypopharynx is an infrequent but potentially serious complication of orogastric or nasogastric tube insertion and endotracheal intubation. We report two cases of injury to the hypopharynx resulting in a pseudodiverticulum of the hypopharynx that was initially diagnosed as esophageal atresia. Both cases were managed successfully by conservative therapy. We also review the literature regarding neonatal pharyngeal pseudodiverticulum.
