    Four patients with a stricture of the cervical oesophagus are described. The stricture was hard and fibrotic and usually involved at least 2 cm of the oesophagus; there was no obvious cause of these strictures. Its management is described, using a local skin flap to replace the stenosed segment. This condition does not appear to have been described before.
