Epiphrenic pulsion diverticula are rare and often asymptomatic. We describe a case presenting in an unusual fashion, and review the controversy over the management of this condition with regard to the requirement for myotomy and antireflux surgery. We believe that both procedures are necessary, but believe that both procedures are necessary, but optimal management strategies are unlikely to be resolved as the rarity of the condition precludes largescale prospective studies.
