 In a 68-year-old male, upper digestive endoscopy revealed an elevated lesion in the esophagus. After 2 years follow-up, the size of the tumor had increased and the patient was referred to our hospital. Esophageal endoscopy revealed a soft bluish plateau lesion on the esophagus at 30 cm from the incisors, compatible with esophageal hemangioma. The tumor was completely treated by endoscopic mucosal resection(EMR), using the EEMR-tube method. Histopathological findings showed formation of a vascular lumen with irregular dilation below the lamina muscularis mucosa, suggesting hemangioma of the esophagus. Esophageal hemangioma is a rare benign esophageal tumor and most patients are asymptomatic. It is important to treat the tumor without complications under informed consent.
