The clinical behavior and response to therapy of rare histologic variants of esophageal carcinoma are unclear. To evaluate the results of therapy in this group the records of 29 patients treated between 1949 and 1991 with primary rare histologic variants of esophageal carcinoma were retrospectively reviewed. This group represented 1.2% of 2454 cases of esophageal carcinoma treated between 1949 and 1991 and included mucoepidermoid (n = 14), small-cell (n = 12), adenoid cystic (n = 2), and… Expand
Small cell carcinoma of the esophagus: the Tata Memorial Hospital experience.
TLDR
Treatment strategies must incorporate systemic chemotherapy along with radical surgery or radiotherapy as part of a multimodality approach to improve overall survival in patients diagnosed with small cell carcinoma of the esophagus between 1985 and 2001. Expand
Surgery for Unusual Histopathologic Variants of Esophageal Neoplasms: A Report of 23 Cases With Emphasis on Histopathologic Characteristics
TLDR
Survival data of the unusual pathologic variants seem to be comparable to those of the most frequently encountered neoplasms, especially in case of small-cell carcinoma. Expand

TLDR
The clinical symptoms, radiological and endoscopic features of primary esophageal MEC were similar to those of esophagal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), a rare disease and prone to be misdiagnosed. Expand
Small cell carcinoma of the esophagus
TLDR
The goal of the current study was to analyze the outcome of 8 patients treated at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, with particular focus on the histologic findings of the resected specimens. Expand
Biological behavior of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the esophagus.
TLDR
Esophageal MEC had an aggressive biological nature and was resistant to adjuvant therapies and the poor prognosis may be caused by high proliferative and metastatic potential. Expand
Population-based analysis of small cell carcinoma of the esophagus using the SEER database.
TLDR
SmCC of the esophagus is uncommon, older age and distant metastases were independently associated with poor survival, and Chemotherapy could provide significant clinical benefit for those patients, especially chemoradiotherapy and surgery combined with chemotherapy. Expand
Primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the esophagus: review of the literature
TLDR
Cox multivariate regression analysis revealed that the presence of lymph node metastasis and male gender were independent factors negatively impacting survival, and the outcome of MECE appears to have improved signifi- cantly during the past two decades. Expand
Primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the esophagus: review of the literature
TLDR
Cox multivariate regression analysis revealed that the presence of lymph node metastasis and male gender were independent factors negatively impacting survival, and the outcome of MECE appears to have improved significantly during the past two decades. Expand
Small Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
TLDR
A case of small cell esophageal carcinoma treated with alternated chemotherapy (including cisplatin, etoposide, vincristine, cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin) and irradiation followed by surgery, despite a pathological complete response, died of regional disease recurrence 29 months after the diagnosis.
