Esophageal hemangioma occurs in fewer than three percent of all benign esophageal neoplasm. To treat symptomatic esophageal hemangioma, surgical resection can be performed. A case of esophageal hemangioma was successfully treated by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). The patient was a 50-year-old man who presented with dysphagia and epigastric discomfort. An endoscopic ultrasonography examination revealed an esophageal submucosal mass confined to the submucosal layer, with no continuity with adjacent vessels without regional lymphadenopathy. For diagnosis and symptomatic relief, EMR was performed. The final diagnosis was benign esophageal cavernous hemangioma. No complications have been evident during a 3-year follow-up.
