Abstract

Esophageal strictures in pediatric age are a quite common condition due to different etiologies. Esophageal strictures can be divided in congenital, acquired and functional. Clinical manifestations are similar and when symptoms arise, endoscopic dilation is the treatment of choice. Our aim was to consider the efficacy of this technique in pediatric population, through a wide review of the literature.
