A 57-year-old male was introduced to our hospital by a clinician who had found a tumor in the patient's cervical esophagus. X-ray examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed an ulcerative and localized-type tumor, measuring 4cm in diameter, on the right side of the wall of the cervical esohophagus. Histological studies of bite biopsy specimens revealed a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. Total esophagectomy was carried out. Pathological studies of the resected specimens revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, pT4(trachea)N1 M0 IM0 StageIVa. The submucosal lesion neighboring the cancer revealed gastric foveolar epithelium. With this data in mind, the lesion was eventually judged to have originated from ectopic gastric epithelium.
