(named after pathologist Friedrich Albert von Zenker 1825-1898)Zenker diverticulum is a pharyngeal diverticulum located between the hypopharynx and the spine. It bulges out at Killian's triangle and is attributed to the so-called false diverticula (pseudodiverticula).
Zenker-diverticulum causes passage disorders of the pharyngo-esophageal passage. Affected patients first complain about dysphgia. Regurgitation of food occurs more frequently. With the Zenker diverticulu growing, a globus sensation in the neck arises. Sometimes, there is an intensive halitosis in addition to that.
