Abstract :

Esophageal obstruction is frequently reported in camels. They are caused by ingestion of food or other foreign bodies such as rags and polyethylene bags. In adult animal├ó┬?┬?s obstruction may be caused by bezoars migrating from the rumen or pressure against the esophagus from the neighboring tissues such as abscess, lymph node or cysts. Diagnosis was based on clinical findings, passing stomach tube through the mouth and radiography. Endoscopy was conducted in some instances. Esophagostomy was successful to remove foreign bodies in the cervical region or even in the mediastinal region however rumenotomy was achieved to remove foreign bodies in the cardiac region. The operations were fraught with high success rate but complications were in the form of esophageal fistula.
