INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary aspiration can cause mortality and morbidity. Diffuse aspiration bronchiolitis (DAB) is one of the aspiration syndromes which often gets undernoticed. In this case the cause of aspiration was complete paralysis of the esophagus, with symptoms ongoing since childhood indicating misdiagnosed syndrome and suboptimal treatment. There is hardly any mention about esophageal motility disorder other than classic achalasia causing DAB.
