Regarding management of squamous papilloma in the esophagus, endoscopic resection is indicated to differentiate esophageal papilloma from other similar appearing lesions: verrucous squamous cell carcinoma, granulation tissue, and papillary leukoplakia. Lesions smaller than 1 cm can usually be removed with a cold forceps biopsy, but larger lesions require endoscopic mucosal resection. Outcomes were excellent using this approach with resolution of the lesions, and no or low risk for recurrence.10"' Based on the benign nature of this condition and the excellent outcome of resection, no follow up plans were made for this patient.
