A 54-year-old man with a history of 3 cervical spine fusion procedures presented with postoperative dysphagia. Although he stated that he had experienced some mild difficulty in swallowing solids over the previous 5 months, his dysphagia had significantly worsened 1 week after his most recent spinal fusion procedure. Physical examination of his fixed and rigid neck showed well-healed midline posterior and left anterior scars.

The findings of his physical examination were otherwise unremarkable.
