Achalasia is rare disorder with an estimated prevalence of 0.5∼1 per 100,000 per year and secondary achalasia due to trauma is rarer. The following case report describes a patient who developed achalasia after chest trauma. This report presents a 22 year-old male with chest trauma who had hoarseness and postprandial reflux. We suggested the achalasia through video-fluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS), and confirmed superior and recurrent laryngeal neuropathies through laryngeal electromyography (EMG). VFSS and laryngeal EMG are helpful to diagnose the achalasia due to vagus nerve injury after chest trauma. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2010; 34: 603-606)
Key Words: Achalasia, Trauma, Laryngeal electromyography
