ABSTRACT: Esophageal strictures are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children. They may develop as a primary constriction, due to chemical injury after corrosive ingestion or following gastroesophageal reflex disease, secondary to a surgically repaired esophageal atresia (with or without tracheoesophageal fistula) or following any esophageal injury. Strictures are also encountered in children following sclerotherapy for portal hypertension. In developing countries easy access to corrosive agents and accidental ingestion by children makes it a leading cause of benign strictures in children. The results of esophageal dilations in 137 children with benign strictures over a 14 year period is detailed in this communication.
