We report a 48-year-old patient who developed secondary achalasia because of esophageal sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis can involve many gastrointestinal tract organs and can affect the esophagus in different ways. We describe how achalasia was diagnosed and treated in our patient and provide a review of the presentations of esophageal sarcoidosis.
