A case report is presented of the use of a jejunal microvascular free flap for the reconstruction of a hypopharyngeal stricture caused by caustic ingestion. Although the airway was reestablished, there was aspiration and diplophonia. This case is discussed as an example of an effective treatment of a difficult problem, but one posing secondary problems arising from the use of jejunum.
