Abstract

Early squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus has been defined as a tumor limited to the mucosa or submucosa without nodal metastasis in the resected specimen [I]. This corresponds to pTis-TlNOMO or stage 0–1 according to the TNM classification. Superficial esophageal cancer has been defined by endoscopic evidence of a tumor that does not extend beyond the submucosa regardless of the presence of lymph node metastasis.
