Abstract

An acquired megaoesophagus in a calf has been described. The diagnosis of megaoesophagus was made based on clinical and laboratory examinations, using contrast radiography, and necropsy findings. Atropine sulphate was used to enlighten the relationship between damage in the N. vagus and bradycardia, which developed in the megaoesophagus case.
