Oesophagal cavernous hemangioma is a rare benign tumour. It is often discovered by chance, as it is usually asymptomatic.
Its diagnosis is made by endoscopy, aided by imaging and requires histological confirmation. Its treatment of choice is surgical.
We report the observation of an 80-year-old woman who was consulted for dysphagia and hematemesis, in whom the thoraco-abdomino-pelvic scanner revealed a large mass in the lower third of the thoracic and abdominal oesophagus.
The interest of this case lies in the impressive character of the volume of the tumour and its telling scannographic semiology.

Key words: Hemangioma, esophagus, benign tumor, CT
