INTRODUÇÃO: A disfagia é o principal sintoma das doenças do esôfago e é representada pela dificuldade em deglutir o alimento ingerido no trajeto da orofaringe até o estômago. Ela é queixa comum na prática clínica diária envolvendo várias especialidades na sua investigação. MÉTODOS: Foi realizada revisão atualizada da literatura internacional através do Pubmed (www.pubmed.com) e nacional (www.lilacs.br) utilizando-se as seguintes palavras-chave: disfagia e transtornos da deglutição. A extensão do tema foi limitado aos seguintes enfoques: etiologia, diagnóstico e exames complementares mais aplicáveis à exploração propedêutica. CONCLUSÃO: Embora a literatura apresente bom entendimento do processo disfágico, no diagnóstico preciso de sua causa há freqüentemente necessidade de múltiplos exames complementares que associados fazem melhor entender o que acomete o paciente e orientará mais adequadamente a conduta a ser tomada
