An 11-year-old cat presented for evaluation of intermittent vomiting, constipation and hyporexia of 3 weeks duration. Ultrasonographic and endoscopic examination revealed a soft tissue mass adjacent to the lower gastro-esophageal sphincter. Surgical excision of the mass was successfully performed resulting in a resolution of clinical signs. Histologically the mass was consistent with a smooth muscle hamartoma. At follow-up 7 months after surgery, the cat remained free from clinical signs.
