Acute esophageal perforations are potentially life-threatening events that carry high morbidity and mortality rates. There has been a paradigm shift in the standard treatment of acute esophageal perforations from surgery to esophageal stents over the last two decades. We report a case of a 62-year-old male, managed successfully with fully covered esophageal stent for foreign body (denture)-induced acute esophageal perforation. The report also highlights the failure of routine radiological investigation to detect and localize denture (as dentures are made of radiolucent material).
