Steakhouse syndrome is an esophageal acute obstruction, due to improperly chewed meat. In most cases the etiology cannot be exactly shown, it is seen more frequently in patients with motility disorders in the lower esophageal sphincter and in alcoholics. Medical history and endoscopic examination are the first to be done for diagnosis. The endoscopic removal of foreign body after the diagnosis of obstruction is the most effective treatment method.
