2013 Kenyan Case of the Week

Post your answer in the comments.  Give the findings and your best shot at diagnosis.

The radiographers do all of the fluoroscopic exams here - these are the only pictures we had to make a diagnosis (the rest of the duodenum and proximal small bowel were normal).

Patient with long-standing history of dysphagia, vomiting, and early satiety.  Other history withheld.

No guesses? Weak sauce.

It's a case of caustic ingestion. The patient had previously unwittingly consumed H2SO4.

How do you "unwittingly" consume sulfuric acid?
