Squamous papilloma of the esophagus is a rare benign tumor with less than 200 cases reported in the literature. The etiology and pathogenesis appear to be related to an inflammatory-reparatory type, such as chronic gastroesophageal reflux, esophagitis, trauma, chemical irritants, and viruses. We present the case of a young female patient with esophageal squamous papilloma discovered accidently during screening upper gastrointestinal endoscopy.
