To study the innervation to the esophagus of Black Bengal goat a research was conducted in the Department of Anatomy and Histology, BAU, Mymensingh-2202, Bangladesh with 12 Black Bengal goats. All specimens were collected from adult Black Bengal goats (over 6 months of age); irrespective of sex.

The nerves supplying the upper third of cervical esophagus by the pharyngoesophageal branch of vagus. The caudal two-third of cervical esophagus was innervated by the recurrent laryngeal nerve.
