A three-year-old Holstein Friesian crossbred heifer was referred with the history of inappetence, drooling and improper rumination since a week. A systematic physical examination followed by a sonogram and survey and contrast (Barium) oesophagram was done for a confirmative diagnosis. The results of clinical examination and radiography helped to confirm the diagnosis of oesophageal diverticulum. Surgical management of the acquired condition was successfully performed and shortly post -operative, the patient recouped completely.
