Among pharyngo-esophageal diverticula the most frequent type is Zenker's di
verticulum, which originates above the cricopharyngeal muscle and below the
thyropharyngeal muscle. Laimer's diverticulum, located below the cricophar
yngeal muscle, is a much rarer type. We report a case of a 54-year-old woma
n with a 3-year history of pharyngeal discomfort that was diagnosed as Laim
er's diverticulum. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the third suc
h reported case.
