 Two thousand two hundred and seventeen cases of gastric and esophageal carcinoma smaller than 4 cm were examined to find out the pathologic characteristics of cancer in the cardiac region. Carcinomas in the periphery region of the esophago-gastric junction were 68 cases (3.1%) out of the 2,217 cases. Compared with other sites of gastric cancer, cancer cases in the periphery region of the esophago-gastric junction were in the higher age group and had a higher rate of papillary adenocarcinoma in histologic type, a higher rate of elevated types and localized ulcerative types in macroscopic type, and a higher rate of cancer death in cases with more than a five-year follow period. In this respect, its data was the same as data concerning esophageal cancer. On the other hand, except for Barrett carcinoma, esophageal carcinoma in the cardiac region was not remarkably different from esophageal cancers at other sites. We concluded that the periphery region of the esophago-gastric junction could be location for gastric cancer.
