Killian-Jamieson diverticulum localized lateral to the proximal cervical esophagus is a paraesophageal diverticulum. This diverticulum originates from weakness of the gap between muscles called Killian-Jamieson space. Discoordination of muscle increases the pressure in this gap and would result in prolapsed mucosa and submucosa. Dysphagia and regurgitation are the most common symptoms.
