Abstract

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a common neoplasm which incidence shows an increasing trend in most populations. This article presents a case of 79-year-old woman with diagnosis of differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus as two adjacent mas with metastasis, which invaded the perigastric and distal esophagus lymph nodes. The patient underwent esophagectomy and gastroesophagotomy. The jejunostomy tube was also embedded. The presence of two simultaneous esophageal tumoral lesions is extremely uncommon and requires further assessments. The prognosis and survival of such patients not seems to be worse than those of patients with isolated esophageal neoplasm.
