This is a image of an plain X-Ray Chest PA view of a 32 year old female postoperative patient of liver transplant. In this X- ray a nasogastric tube (NG) is seen coiled in the oesophagus which is a rare event. It must be noted that nasogastric tube is coiled as a single U-shaped structure. The tip of NG tube is seen in the upper oesophagus. Normally it gets coiled in the mouth while being inserted through the nose.
