Granular cell myoblastomas are uncommon, typically benign tumors. Involvement of the esophagus is rare, and frequently they are asymptomatic. We report a granular cell myoblastoma involving the cervical esophagus in a patient who had paralysis of the true vocal cord and progressive dysphagia. At MR imaging, the circumscribed mass was hypointense on T1-weighted images and mildly hyperintense on T2-weighted images, with homogeneous contrast enhancement.
