Duckett, Lynda A.
Megaesophagus was diagnosed in a llama. This llama presented with a chief complaint of chronic choke. His megaesophagus was diagnosed via history, clinical signs, imaging, and endoscopy. An attempt to find a distinct etiology was made, exploring a variety of differential diagnoses extrapolated from other species. The conclusion was that of an idiopathic etiology. Further research of megaesophagus in the camelid species is needed to discover the most common causes of the disorder in this species.
