Esophageal submucosal dissection can be caused by foreign bodies and endoscopic procedures. It rarely develops spontaneously. If a submucosal hematoma and false lumen are observed at esophagogastroduodenoscopy, the lesion will heal after 7 to 10 days of conservative treatment. A 71-year-old man with sudden-onset chest pain, dyspnea, and a small amount of hematemesis was examined using chest computed tomography (CT) and esophagogastroduodenoscopy. He was diagnosed with submucosal dissection of the esophagus. After 13 days of conservative treatment, esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed mucosal exfoliation and a healing ulcer, and he was discharged without complications. (Korean J Med 77:223-226, 2009)
