We present the case of a 57 year old man with PMH significant for progressive dysphagia (initially to solids and progressed to liquids) and esophagitis with esophageal stricture that was not amendable to endoscopic dilatation. He underwent further workup and was found to have a worsening stricture, in which malignancy was ruled out and biopsy revealed esophagitis with fungal growth. Despite medical therapy he failed to get better and subsequently underwent a minimally invasive Ivor Lewis esophagogastrectomy with Heineke- Mikulicz pyloroplsaty, Witzel fistula and end to side esophagogastrostomy by means of a 21 mm circular stapler. The patient did well postoperatively and was discharged home on post-operative day 9 with no complications on a full liquid diet. On 3 month follow up in the clinic the patient is doing well with no evidence of strictures or leaks.
