Tracheal diverticula are rare benign entities characterized by small air-filled invaginations in the paratracheal area. They may be single or multiple, and usually present with nonspecific symptoms. Ideally, computed tomography imaging studies are used to confirm the diagnosis, followed by surgical resection as the treatment of choice. We present the case of a woman with an acquired tracheal diverticulum, with dysphagia as the only presenting symptom.
