We present two cases of Zenker’s diverticuli (or hypopharyngeal diverticuli), diagnosed and operated on in the Servicio de Cirugía General del Hospital General Docente “Martín Chang Puga” de Nuevitas. We classify the diverticuli, as well as the different diagnostic and surgical procedures. Both of the cases are male, in their 30s, with basic symptoms of dysphagia with solid foods and also with respiratory symptoms. Patients were surgically intervened, with a satisfactory postoperative evolution during a 2-year follow-up.

Key words: esophageal diverticuli, Zenker’s diverticuli, esophagoscopy.
