[A case of superficial esophageal cancer with metastasis to the gastric wall].

Abstract

A 65-year-old man with superficial esophageal cancer associated with gastric wall metastasis is presented. He had suffered from epigastralgia and dysphagia for two months. X-Ray and endoscopic examination revealed esophageal erosion at the right wall of the lower esophagus and a large gastric submucosal tumor at the lesser curvature of the upper and middle stomach. Resection of the lower esophagus and total gastrectomy were performed. Histologically, the erosion of the lower esophagus was moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma invading as deep as the submucosal tissue and the tumor of the stomach was metastasis of the esophageal cancer. Intramural metastasis of esophageal cancer was discussed.
