In Reply.—We appreciate the historical perspective provided by Dr Haller. We described the occurrence of dysphagia lusoria in early childhood as compared with late adolescence. In addition, we documented the use of esophageal manometry to help make a diagnosis in these patients, who often have nonspecific signs and symptoms. We hope our article will alert the pediatric community to this entity.
