Abstract

Because the prognosis of esophageal cancer is generally poor, it is important to detect the disease at an early stage. Although iodine staining is an excellent method for finding early esophageal cancer by endoscopy, it is almost impossible to spray iodine in all patients. We fortunately have detected a tumor without iodine staining because of its white color. We report here a fiat-type esophageal tumor with controversial histopathology.
