Abstract

A 64-year-old man with a history of myocardial infarction presented with heartburn and abdominal fullness that he had had for a month. He visited a primary physician, and barium radiography and esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a tumor in the distal esophagus. He was referred to our institute for surgical treatment. Vital status and physical examination revealed no abnormality. Except a mild elevation of the fasting plasma glucose level, blood cell count, blood chemistries, and serum carcinoembryonie antigen (CEA) level were all normal.
