 Usefulness and diagnostic value of Lugol staining were discussed regarding 28 cases of superficial cancer of the esophagus. Lugol staining was useful not only in diagnosing or excluding m cancer with slight mucosal change, elusive by conventional method, but also in determining the pathological change and area of intraepithelial invasion in the resected specimen.

 In order to detect m cancer with good prognosis,Lugol staining should be utilized more widely. It should be routinely used, in particular, in men over 50 years of age, a high risk group for esophageal cancer.
