Tracheal DV can be congenital and acquired . Patients can be asymptomatic or present with Dysphagia, odynophagia, neck pain, hoarseness, hemoptysis, choking, and recurrent episodes of hiccups and burping. Tracheal diverticulum can be diagnosed on CT Scan and bronchoscopy and the connection with tracheal lumen can be established.
